Some old friends have a bar called the north left in santa ana that would probably be a good bet. Formerly the crosby.

Randomly in Anaheim last week for work, had a quick and good lunch at PokiNometry. Solid poke bowls if you're looking for a quick and cheap lunch.

This looks great thank you. Conveniently I'll be there on Tuesday for the $1 oysters during happy hour so I think we'll give this a try for our first stop. If it sucks you'll hear back from me! tongue.gif

I just had lunch at Chego, first time I've been there. OMG, it's so fucking rich. I had the pork belly and the fries, I feel disgusting. I feel the same way I felt after trying Eggslut. The food was good, but by the time I was finished I knew I'd probably never return. It's just too over the top - too much sour cream, too much cheese, too much oil, too much sauce.

I always go to grand central market to try eggslut, and there's always a big ass line, and I always try something else. Sucks.

@eglbc so you may want to suggest to your friends that they update the website more than once yearly. Apparently they haven't been doing $1 oyster Tuesdays for over 6 months (although it's still prominently on their page) … and despite my calling 3 times beforehand just to check, no one ever answered the phone. Despite those inconveniences, the bartender Zach was very cool and gave us a little complimentary, mini gin tasting. Good beer and some very good beef tataki. Would definitely go back if they got their shit together on the oysters.

Thank you for all the recommendations, but I decided to stick to my instincts and we did The Blind Rabbit for dinner…. going back again on Saturday. nod[1].gif

There is so much good food at the GCM, you're not missing anything. Wexlers pastrami is amazing. Sticky Rice is great. Madcapra, Belcampo, Ramenhood. I had an amazing bowl of chili at a new place that was doing sandwiches and other stuff, forget the name.

Egg Slut is so hyped up, but I love it. Other than the "gentrified" spots that have moved in, my fave is Roast to Go...$3 for a taco but sweet lord do they pack on the meat.

EDIT: went to GCM this past weekend and found that Roast To Go raised it's taco price to $3.50, as of last week. I'm still saying it's worth it, but c'mon, $3 was better

Also, I'm a fan of Sticky Rice

That article is sort of right but not really. Southern California fashion has always been schizoprhenic. The only constant is mostly anything goes except for looking mainstream. Which makes you look like a D-bag.

Thanks for the link @Roycru, I hadn't seen it.

My takeaway from the article is that in order to dress casually in LA one needs to spend about $1500-$2000 for an outfit, plus spend $12,00-$15,000 on a watch.

The feature look in the collage picture just looks like shit .. not sure why that was chosen to highlight the article. The other fits don't seem to be loading for me so I couldn't see the other examples.

NAMM show in Anaheim was a lot of fun. The North Left is a pretty cool bar (but they bagged the oysters). The Blind Rabbit is fantastic and a lot of fun. Went to dinner at the Tangerine Grill & Patio last night in the Anabella Hotel and it was surprisingly good (friend's friend's decision and he was paying so what the hell).

The after party in the Hilton lobby was outrageous. Like an Animal House reprise. Lots of music industry peeps and weirdos … good fun. Saw this 14 year old chick out with her father absolutely tripping her balls off … strange what some people consider parenting. I can't imagine what housekeeping was doing today trying to make the place presentable. I would hope it involved installing brand new carpet throughout.

Which part of Namm were you attending? Bunch of my buddies were constantly texting me about the new DJ gear.

That article makes me sad. LA as a the style capital? FML.

 

The demise of CM also sucks
