    Lol. This is probably my favorite thread on the board and I don't even live in LA. I'm hoping the Monday night between Amon and Portishead I'll be able to hit one of these spots.

    If we like it, and I'm sure we will, we'll be going back plenty. it's seriously like 4 blocks from her apartment. I can't wait to eat duck fat.

    K-TOWN— On August 28 Beer Belly is holding an event titled Craft for Crap and here's how it works. Pick a friend of yours that doesn't necessarily like craft beer, raid said friend's fridge and bring to Beer Belly whatever crap beer you can find. Give the crap beer to a Beer Belly bartender and he/she will trade you one of the following brews from Cismontane: Citizen (Steam Lager), Black's Dawn (Imperial Stout), or Coulter IPA. [EaterWire]

    Pretty sure I have a can of Miller in my fridge somewhere...

    That's an awesome event. I went to Beer Belly last night and it's pretty neat. it's very small. The catfish and chips and the grilled cheese were both great. I had the Black Market Brown from the tap, and a bottle of the Stone collaboration Cheery Chocolate Stout. Wow, that beer has a lot of fucking flavor.

    As long as they change the tap list often, because they have a pretty small amount of taps and carry some pretty wild beers, this place is going to rule.

    I did not...I wasn't really hungry enough and my girlfriend is a vegetarian so she wouldn't be able to help. While there though, i saw for $2 more you can add "Death By Duck" which is duck confit right on top of the fries. Yum. Will try leater.

    Going to happy hour for a b-day party for my gf's coworker today at Public School 612. Pretty nice gastropub attached to the Daily Grill.

    Then stop giving shitty information to tourists. Timmy Nolan's? You'd really tell someone with 0 LA know-how to go to a bar in Toluca Lake frequented by old men who drink too much? The fact that it's a Bears bar makes it worse, the worst people in LA are movie industry transplants.

    On the flip side, Beer Belly is off the hook. The duck fat fries made me feel like the fattest piece of shit but so worth it, and their beer selection is very good (albeit small). Plus, it's in Koreatown, real LA, and it's run by 2 K-Town locals. It's also next to Frank N Hanks which is a great local dive to hit when you're done with BB.

    And to add, the best sports bar to be social at in Hollywood is Hollywood Billiards. It's spaced out so the fans of different teams spread into their own mini-sections. There's a pretty big contingent for every team, the biggest being the Raiders and Cowboys. Plus it's a lot easier to get a drink there than Wangs or Dillons.

    And I don't mean to be a dick, but most people who hate going to LA do so because of bad advice.

    I finally made it to Mohawk bend last night and absolutely loved it. Got there around 6:30pm and was sat immediately. The wait staff was awesome and super attentive. the space is amazing. We had flat bread with tapinade which was good, and I had a pound of the mussels and they were fucking delicious! The tap list was not blowing my mind despite having 70+ beers on it, but all 3 I had were good. The two cocktails my girlfriend had were out of this world good though! I'll be returning as often as I can, especially with the daily-changing menu (both food and beer).

    That sounds awesome Drinkey. I'll check it out. I'm always amazed how fast a full pound of mussels goes when done right.

    Btw, haven't checked in much on the FYF thread but was thinking to maybe hit Wurstkuche either before or after (first band I want to see is OTC, lsat is EitS). If anyone's down make a suggestion for timing. Wurstkuche only a few blocks from FYF.

    Thanks for that! That's the place with the truffle burger, right? Will keep it in mind.

    Yea, figured most boardies would get there at the start of the fest but OTC just seemed a good point to kick things off for me. I can walk to the whole deal though so probably will end up there earlier. Really looking forward to the whole day!

    PS if you guys go to Beer Belly, don't pay cash if you start a tab. I made this mistake and the hold is still on my account 5 days after.

    I don't know. I was really excited to go there but I ended up not loving it. The food was good, the beer was better, but the atmosphere reminded me too much of that episode of The Simpsons where Moe changes the bar into M, this post-modern hipster shit palace. But still the vegan pizza was tasty.

    If you ever went inside Stinker's Truck Stop, you will know that Mohawk Bend doesn't come close to being a hipster shit palace.

    Thanks for all the suggestions everyone. I think i'm going with Dillon's. Is there a place to park there and leave the car until after the concert? I'm not driving but my roommate is and we both want to drink and watch football. You're obviously welcome to join us.

    Funny you say that Drinkey, I parked in the Hollywood Bowl parking lot all three times i've gone. I was amazed at how fast I got out of that lot the first two times. About 15 minutes. The last time I sat for a good hour though.

    Dillon's has valet you should be able to use all night for pretty cheap. It's not too hard to find street parking around there either.

    EDIT: if I end up deciding to go to the show, i'll def meet you guys at Dillon's!
