I could smell Shark as I entered the city
that is gross
Strummer’s was cool though. Beer was so cheap
Strummers is the best place
This rain is too good. I really wish I didn’t have responsibilities cause all I want to do is cozy up and watch Netflix all day
It's nice to see summer finally end
Coming to LA in March as part of my NHL arena tour, seeing the Kings, Ducks, and Sharks play. Gonna be hanging in the LA area for about 4 days. What are some things I have to do while I'm there?
@kupe what kind of things are you into? Beer? Beaches? Buildings? Food?
Beer, beaches, nature, pop culture. My food tastes are very simple but I wouldn't turn down a good spot to eat.
Best beer around is near-ish to the Honda Center at The Bruery or Bruerry Terreux. Nearby is also Bottle Logic, and very close to the stadium is Noble Ale Works (I've actually parked at Noble then walked to Ducks games to save money)
I would suggest checking out Anaheim Packing District on that day if you want a cool "food hall" in the area, it's super hip and there's a ton of great food and it's just a really cool place. And of course Disneyland is there. That kinda wraps up everything I do in Anaheim.
For your day with the Kings (beware their shitty fans!!!! ), the art district is a really fun nearby area. Art District Brewing is your best bet for some solid beer and great hangs (skee ball, nice little food window inside) and the whole area of the Arts District is really fun to walk around. Lots to see and do.
For something closer to STAPLES, and for the best beer downtown, Mikkeller and Modern Times are right next to each other and both serve food. They're in a much more boring part of the city though, so weigh which you are more into.
Ummmm and for beaches it's hard to go wrong. I am particular to the beach cities (Redondo, Hermosa, Mahattan) as I live here, but Venice is also kitchy and entertaining. Long Beach has a lot to explore by the ocean as well.
Feel free to ask anymore questions if you have them!
Really not a fan Modern Times and their dank dojo or whatever the place is called.
Arts District and Mikkeller are great though. Angel City’s not bad too.
If you like books definitely hit up The Last Bookstore
Dankness Dojo food is whatever but Modern Times’ beer is great
Don't even go into the city, check out Glendale and Burbank where's there's tons of parking and way less people
What don't you like about Modern Times? Their beer is about as good as it gets out here. Angel City is definitely the best hangout but that beer is trash water for the most part!
Whatever you do, do not go to Burbank or Glendale, DO NOT!!!!!!!!!!
Probably stay away from Malibu. Between the fires this month and the mudslides today, they're due for like a tornado next week
But the galleria and all the studio tours!
yeah yeah yeah and Portos and Don Cucos and Universal Studios and Griffith and the Zoo and Formans and Golden Road.... yeah yeah yeahhhhhhhh
this is indeed important info, I wouldn't head much further beach-wise than Santa Monica anytime soon @kupe
365 accidents reported in 4-hour period during SoCal storm
good lawd, it's insane how bad people are at driving in the rain here
I’d just picked up my car from the garage after someone rear ended me and did $4.5k worth of damage. Whole drive to work I was thinking if I get hit again there is gonna be a murder on the 5
Why are people so bad at it? And for god sake turn your lights on!
I dunno maybe it was just cause I went with my uncle who was visiting and the whole time he was complaining that he couldn’t get a standard larger like a fucking Carlsberg or a Fosters and these were all flowery beers. Probably coloured my feelings.
I’ll give the dojo another shot but even when I’ve had cans I’ve never been blown away
hahaha i mean.... yeah, they definitely don't do standards, but that's the point. If you ever get yourself over there again, try some of the crazier stuff that maybe you wouldn't normally try. Something darker and barrel aged, or something more sour/fruity... they do that stuff the best. If you are looking for standards or IPAs, then year Angel City.Arts Dist/Mumford is more up your alley for sure
