    The last time I went to a show there I at at Luna Park and I thought it was spectacular. Give yourself some time because it's definitely not a quick in and out, but the service was great, food was delicious, and they had a very nice selection of wine and beer.

    Yes! I went a couple weeks ago. The food is very good - I went with my pescatarian girlfriend and for her it's pretty much all dumplings but they're all made in house by hand and they're delicious. I definitely want to try the noodles and the fried chicken. Good beer selection too.

    Peking Tavern just opened, right? And right around the corner from what used to be The Parish? Must check it out.

    Also, pretty excited we're getting Belcampo opening up in the now vacant butcher's stall in Grand Central

    Eggslut too

    Yeah Peking Tavern is MAYBE 3 months old? And yeah right over at that corner where Parish was. Wendell is a new bar that just opened over there too, in the space that used to be Craby Joe's and it's really cool.

    I NEVER go to Grand Central Market. i really need to. I have been to the Eggslut truck in front of Handsome Coffee though.

    Good to hear solid reports on Peking Tavern, Drinkey. Looking forward to trying it.

    Had no idea Egg Slut was opening a brick & mortar location in Grand Central Market. The eggs I had off that truck were magnificent. Now I'll have to head to Grand Central Market. Embarrassed to say that I haven't ever been either. In fact, I don't think I've ever walked down that block of Broadway before.

    Did Parish close? That's too bad, I liked it. But that area was kind of dead.

    Yeah, Parish jsut shut down about a month ago. I thought it was okay, but it way overpriced for what it was.

    I got Wire show later Sunday, but this looks like a good starter...

    Wurstkuche is celebrating five years of sausage service at its original Downtown beer hall on November 17. From 3-6 p.m. management will pour "one of our favorite beers" on the house.

    Just mapped it. My apologies.
    Possibly off the 110 fwy. Generally south of the 10 fwy.

    Also, since they are connected by the Expo line, downtown is completely in play.

    I went there a few years ago and it was excellent. Really cool atmosphere, I was there during the week and it was calm and had a good, friendly group of people there, and the drinks were tasty.

    I'm more of a whiskey man, but I love Cana.. been a member there for a while (although they've greatly relaxed the membership policies since). Sometimes they have some pretty good punch bowls on their menu that make for a fun night with a group. Bar staff is all super friendly and helpful. Cute spot. Would definitely recommend it.

    Damn, 34 pages and the only mention of The Surly Goat is talking about other bars owed by the same owners? The Surly Goat is easily my favorite bar in LA...

    The location alone damns it for me. The few times I've been there, however, they've had great beers on tap and fantastic bartenders. I always talk with them and they'll give me free beers because I'm not a West Hollywood kid who thinks he knows beer and asks for a Stella.

    Yes, I love the Surly Goat, but I really only go there if I am in the area for something else. i never would go out of my way to go there. very few of us live in or spend a significant amount of time in WeHo. They lose points with me for not serving any food too.

    Ooof. That's far. And no food?! Lame.
    I'll give it a try next time I'm up there...

    Eighty-Two sounds tiiight.
    And there is Los Tacos right in front of Surly Goat...24/7 Mexican place. Can get pretty rowdy in the after hours...I've been threatened with a plastic fork there.
