Drinking in LA

Now, I for one have never had a bad night out (or day) drinking in this fair city.

At least none that I remember.

My litany of cicatrices might indicate otherwise.

In any event, the bit about stumbling into the AA meeting is pretty funny.

A good article, even if a little heavy on the Southbay.

I can't believe they didn't go to the Frolic Room?

A word of warning to those who read the article: prepare for salty language. Thought I'd mention that for those who steer away from such. (Of course, I could be posting an article about coprophagia, and that's not a dirty word, is it? Anyway.)

Glad they hit King Eddy's. Were I toodling these kids around, I'd see that they saw the inside of Mr. T's, Craby Joe's, Boardner's, the Valley Inn, Coach and Horses, the Roost, Tee Gee, Golden Pagoda, the Arsenal, the HMS Bounty, Cole's, Formosa, Tam O' Shanter, Tom Bergin's, and yes, of course the Frolic Room. And we'd drive out to the Jay Dee in Alhambra, damnabit! If I didn't have an 86 at the Venice Room, we'd get bounced from there too.

I suspect the "some tiki bar" mentioned is the Tiki Ti.

I don't know any of those watering holes in the Southbay. I may have to take an alcoholiday down there some time in the near future.

Best Dive Bar (and yes, I don't mean "dive bar") is Footsie's.

Hands down.

"and happy hour pulled down the sun"

What a beautiful phrase.
