    Hey, do they still have "The Red Onion" in LA? That's my image of a downtown LA bar, or something on Skid Row maybe. Guess things have changed.

    I'd skip Mountain Bar and go to Hop Louie which, like Redwood, is an authentic L.A. dive. Though nothing in today's LA is as divey as 80's Hollywood. I once saw a guy smoking crack in the corner of the Frolic Room (circa 1987) and then immediately assault someone that looked at him funny.
    Never been to Hop Louie. I think Bradford should see Hollywood at its finest ala Jumbo's. Nothing but class. Off topic, but have you been to Wood and Vine yet, Baron? A friend took me last month and I was rather surprised. The bar is rather nice and has a pretty patio in the back. The crowd is typical of that area, though, and the menu is trendy but still worth checking out if in the area. Had the chicken and waffles and the salted butterscotch for dessert; both were good if overpriced. Cocktails were good, too. I typically avoid places like that since the majority lack any substance or character but this was a nice surprise that side of Hollywood.

    If I'm going to see dancing girls, I'd prefer to go to Sams Hofbrau where at least the girls get naked [​IMG]

    Jumbos is fun. Wish the girls had more ass. Anyone go to Cheetah's? I've heard Courtney Love used to dance there.

    Only during daylight hours, for lunch, preferably. If that's your destination at night, you've got problems.

    Depends on how poorly the night went at Jumbo's. Last time it was definitely a Jumbo's AND Cheetah's night.

    How is Los Balcones? After eating Peruvian here in CR I realized just how shitacular Peruvian was back home.

    I'm actually going out tomorrow to a place for lunch. I'll show you what I mean.

    Los Balcones is good but I don't have a huge frame of reference. It's a nice place to drop in before a movie for some small dishes and a drink. I haven't had a full meal there but I've liked it enough to come back a few times. I did have a meal at Mo-Chica down by your alma mater and it was great.
