    I have a bunch of friends coming into town for this. Can anyone recommend a brunch spot with bottomless mimosas that'll hold a nice sized group?

    Downtown area. Thanks

    I am staying at the Regal Inn on 5966 S. Broadway. The metro trip planner is telling me that there is not a Rail option to get to City Tavern, and that the Silver line or Metro express line 460 are my best options. Is this accurate? And if so, do the $5 day-passes work with these lines, which seem to have inflated rates?

    Oh yeah, you are staying waaaay south! I think the $5 day pass works for all lines, but I am not positive.

    Damn. I didn't think it was that far south. I guess we will just ride the silver line. It drops us off literally in front of city tavern. We'll just load up our TAP cards with enough for 3 rides I guess. Thanks!

    Yes, the Bonaventure thanks so much! I think I'll take your advice with the Expo line. I am not checking in until 1:30 or 2, so I think I'll miss Sat, but perhaps Sunday

    Yes, at the machines it asks you whether you need to purchase one or re fill an existing card. Just follow the directions.

    Culver City is blessed with the best dive bars in the LA region. Go to the Tattle Tale on Sepulveda/Sawtelle for cheap beers and bad karaoke, and in the same stripmall is the Scarlet Lady Tavern. Also across from the Sony lot is Backstage Bar. This place has great karaoke as well, and surprisingly good food.

    If you're looking for restaurants check out downtown Culver City (its near the Trader Joes). City Tavern is great, East Borough (Vietnamese) is pretty tasty and there are a ton of other good options in the area. For nicer bars, there is Bigfoot Lodge west and Oldfields (which is a great cocktail bar), both on Venice.

    If you have a car, there are 3 great restaurants on the western edge of Culver City; A-Frame, Corner Door and Waterloo and City (all on Washington Blvd). There is also the Alibi Room, which is close to there and serves tacos from the Kogi truck menu.

    Oh, also the city's Fiesta La Ballona fesival starts Friday, so there will be a carnival/fair setup at Overland and Culver. That is usually pretty fun and they have good vendor food, cheap beer and some great/terrible cover bands play.

    Dude, awesome recommendations. Thank you so much!! We're staying closer to the downtown area, like a block from Father's Office I think, so a bunch of these places should be walking distance.

    See you guys at City Tavern. I may recognize a few of you. I'll likely be in my tie-dye and Man Utd hat with my son who will either be wearing a Yes or Slayer shirt.
    I have been to concerts. I will go to concerts in the future.

    I am going to do my damnedest to see a good portion of that set. The overlap with Todd Terje is bumming me out.

    Yeah, the Terje--RtJ--Slowdive Conflict Block is the suckiest part of Saturday. The article says they're touring in November, though, so I'm sure they'll be back around.

    I know this conversation has been had already, but I am going to see all of Slowdive as I think they'll be the most difficult of the three to see again anytime soon (decision made a bit easier by Terje's live set not being the full band).

    Metro site says it doesn't take effect until September 15. Haven't ridden recently though, so who knows what's correct.

    zachb is right, changes don't go into effect until Sept. 15, day pass is still $5. I'd take the Expo line vs. the Silver line for anyone going, probably more efficient.
