Where is the King Eddy or Bar 107
If any of you are looking at a place to hang before shows at the Ech/Echoplex, I recommend El Prado
Ended up there last night before This Will Destroy You/APTBS show. It's all wine/beer (no hard liquor) and a small food menu. Booze selection is not huge but what they had was excellent and priced about $7 a glass. Dark atmosphere and not the widest room around, but it was buzzing. And what I really liked is the tunes- they are spinning a lot of cool vinyl. It made for a really mellow time and I'll definitely go back.
Anyone done Lazy Ox recently? Their new exec chef's been in place for several mos now, right? Wondering how the place is doing. Do they still have those glorious pig ears?
Mas Malo was pretty good. Nothing earth shattering, but very well made "gourmet" Mexican -- was enjoyed by all. Never tried the violet macarons at Bottega Louie before. OH LORD. Heaven. Easily surpassing my old favorite, the Earl Grey Milk Chocolate flavor.
Hoping to check out one or all 4 of these places whil doing Make Music Pasadena on Saturday. Should be fun!
Don't forget to try and dip into LB for some amazing Belgiums and IPA's while catching some Euro Cup before the music http://www.luckybaldwins.com/

Yeah, Lucky Baldwin's was a regulare pub for me years ago when i used to spend a lot of time in Pasadena. They're doing IPA fest right now, so I definitely want to stop by there too.
Brief, interesting article about Angel City brewing
I walked by it on the way to the train yesterday and there was some serious work going on inside in terms of construction. I'm still holding out hope that this place will eventually be the local brewery I can reliably get growlers filled up on with fresh beer. And it really is a nice space inside.
Kings Row in Pasadena is a nice place.
Spring St. Bar dudes bought the King Edward. Fucking bullshit. Although as a non-crack addicted white person who lives east of Los Angeles St., I should probably blame myself.
I think Paulette's macarons are the best I've tried. There is one in the Little Tokyo mall. The coconut one.. omg.
Edit: Looks like Paulette is now lette. Woops.

I had the best burger of my life tonight with ThomThom at Rustic Canyon in Santa Monica.
Looks delish. Better than Umami?
I just had the most divine sandwich at my first visit to Mendocino Farms in Marina Del Rey. Got the prosciutto and roasted chicken sandwich, absolutely incredible. Got the Steak BLT to go, gonna have it for dinner.
Oh yeah I really like Mendocino Farms. Isn't there one in Manhattan Beach, too? Probably a lot closer for you Chris. And their steak banh mi... drool.
Edit: Hmm guess not, thought there was though.
I go to Manhattan Beach all the time, so I enjoyed the drive. Any excuse to go up toward MDR/Venice/Santa Monica is a good one.
The Summer Cubano that they're doing right now is delightful.
I'm gonna have to go back this weekend. The Shrimp Po Boy that is apparently for a limited time sounds amazing too.
