    We always have problems getting cabs after shows near USC, so this is great. That said, what are your suggestions downtown closer to 7th street?

    Right off the top of my head these three are great choices for food and drinks:

    Mas Malo

    The Counter
    http://www.yelp.com/biz/the-counter-los-angeles-5

    Urbano Pizza
    http://www.yelp.com/biz/urbano-pizza-bar-los-angeles

    EDIT: also, the metro rail lines should be running late until 2am now too.

    ^ Great suggestions, both. Out of those, I'd rock Sugarfish or Urbano. Sugarfish, in particular, is amazing quality sushi. I wouldn't say it has the atmosphere or experience of something like Bottega Louie's. But the fish is outta this world.

    Speaking of DT, two places I need to get to stat are Bäco Mercat (408 S. Main St) and The Parish (840 S. Spring St). The Parish just opened and has what sounds like a great vibe.

    I'll get my ass over to the Oinkster bmack. Thanks for the suggestion.

    Last night me and a group of friends went to Hangover, the all you can drink bar in K-Town. It's a mile walk from my place, so not too bad at all. They let you drink for four hours but it didn't seem like they were going to regulate that whatsoever. We went with the cheap beer because, lets be honest, after the fourth pitcher it doesn't really matter if it's newcastle or PBR. The place was definitely not crowded for a Saturday night, and we had a blast. Decent food too.

    I did not get the sense that they were keeping track of time when i was there at all. I definitely want to go back, that place is awesome.

    Anyone checked out the L.A. brewing company yet? This caught my eye in particular...


    http://labrewingco.com/index.php/los...beer-club.html


    The Los Angeles Brewing Company Beer Club
    will be offering deals for regular customers on over 100 taps of cold beer.
    Located centrally in Downtown Los Angeles,
    The Los Angeles Brewing Company will be the place to relax and watch the big game.
    Soon, you will be able to join this unique club
    that will provide you an experience
    that will leave a memorably impression.

    SO HERE'S HOW IT WORKS!:

    Any guest at The Los Angeles Brewery Company can sign up
    with an incentive to try every beer that is on tap.

    So for those who are willing and able:

    When you reach your 50th unique beer
    you will get a LABC Beer Mug
    WITH YOUR NAME ENGRAVED ON IT!!!
    (It will be stored for your use at LABC)

    When you reach your 100th unique beer
    you will be rewarded with a beer
    ON THE HOUSE ON EACH VISIT!!!

    Those who participate in the LABC Beer Club will be given a unique card
    to help keep track of what beers you have consumed

    You Must Purchase A Different Beer AT LEAST Every 2 Weeks
    to keep the tally going, or else you'll have to start from the beginning

    SO WHO'S READY FOR THE LABC BEER CLUB?!
    You know, but that's valid because if we are all gonna die anyway shouldn't we be enjoying ourselves now? You know, I'd like to quit thinking of the present, like right now, as some minor insignificant preamble to something else.

    It's a cool, huge space, with great beer selection and pretty good food, but with some of the most inept, slow wait staff I've ever encountered. The waitress i had knew nothing about the menu, couldn't answer a single question and went 30 minutes between each time we wanted to order something. Every person i've talked to that has gone there has had a similar experience. They need to step up their game a lot if they want any repeat customers. i would never go out of my way to go there again.

    OH one-eyed Gypsy was a blast! Really cool decor, much larger than I expected. Super awesome bartenders. The food was much better than i expected. Corndogs were small but had really tasty crispy shells, and the sliders were crazy delicious. Has a piece of someone's bacon pizza which was great, and the sweet potato tots are also really good. nice beer selection, the clown cup cocktail for $4 at happy hour was a great deal, and the peppered tequila cocktail was fantastic. I got there right around 7, and it was pretty dead until at least 10:30. Completely packed to the gills by 11pm. They have live music as well, when I was there it was a female fronted band that was very similar to Gogol Bordello. Super fun times, would def go again!

    Yes! The official event was canceled, but most of the places still had specials, and there were tons and tons of people out. I think we ended up doing 13 bars in 9 hours. It was a great fucking day.

    Thx for the review Drinkey. I haven't been there since it was little Pedros.

    I did LA Brewing Co when it first opened. Like Drinkey said, it needs work. The Beer Club idea is cool and, since I was last there during the soft open, it may be time to give them another shot.

    It got shut down because of some law about "free" alcohol, and supposedly the organizers didn't apply for all the proper permits.

    Went to Bäco Mercat this weekend with my fiance and the food was amazing. We shared a flatbread, the original Bäco, and ordered a few small plates, and everything was great. I also had a couple of Speedway Stouts to wash it all down which is always fantastic. I'll definitely be going back very soon.

    If I can make one recommendation... it's get the toron... definitely my favorite baco on their menu. I try not to order it every time I go there. Everything else is fantastic... but the toron is just.. god damn!

    Nice, Blackboard Eats is the shit. Post what you guys ordered after you eat there so I can get some ideas about what to order next time!

    That sounded really really good but I opted for the original. Next time I'll try it for sure.

    Is the toron the oxtail one? That is their best one by quite a bit. The regular baco is also really good too.

    Looks like Stone will be opening a location in Pasadena!

    Squid Ink announces that the brewery will open up a base of sorts up north, with plans to install one of its Stone Company Stores into Pasadena in the coming months. The outlet will carry rare Stone beers and plans to fill growlers and offer tap tastings, and will help develop what we're just going to start calling Pasadena's "Ale Alley," as this same stretch of Raymond Avenue is already home to Craftsman Brewing.
