Any SFers planning to go to the AAAC dinner in BH on Friday evening? I thought I'd go unless the weather suddenly turns beastly hot.

Not lately but I went when I was younger. Typical Italian, pricey for what it is, not great, but definitely not bad. Total date spot.

New to LA, never been to a game at the Coliseum. I know it's not in the greatest neighborhood, but are there sportsbars nearby if I wanted to show up extra early (to beat the traffic) and watch other games until the USC game starts?

Has anyone been to Choza Mama in old town pas yet? i'm definitely stoked about a peruvian restaurant being in the area, but the yelp reviews are mixed. people are stupid though so i'll definitely be trying it myself.

I recently moved to LA right next to SC. There's not much down here though. I would probably recommend the Lab Gastropub. It's about 3-4 blocks north of the Coliseum. That's the only bar/pub type restaurant around this area that is decent I've found so far. There are a few other bars, notably the 901 bar and grill (The 9-0) at 2902 Figueroa St., Los Angeles, CA, 90007. This place is covered in students all the time, and for sure on a game day. They also recently redid the 'Traditions' bar, which is USC's campus bar, I'm unsure if that's open to the public or just students though.

^It's a dinner for habituees of Ask Andy About Clothes at McCormick & Schmidt's restaurant on Rodeo Drive. The illustrious Mr. Andy Gilchrist will be present. Starts at 6:00. I am going in (dressy) casual daywear. I hope all the iGents won't be in black tie, making me feel like a yokel!

Something started bugging me today. Who the hell is "Santa Monica," the patron saint of lowriders?

In a way, yes. Saint Monica was the mother of Saint Augustine, who was a degenerate dirtbag before he saw the light and became a saint. So because poor Monica had to put up with having a 'bad son', she became the patron saint of dirtbags and lowlives, many of whom drive lowriders. Why the question?

Other than having a "live-in girlfriend," as we'd say today, how was he such a lowlife and dirtbag? It's been many a year since I read the Confessions, but I have a feeling if we applied such epithets to him, they would have to be affixed to a great many SFers.
