Sonny’s Hideaway

Sonny’s Hideaway

WHY Well-crafted, upscale cocktails and vibrant American cuisine in a classy setting. WHAT Don’t be surprised when walking through the non-descript entrance to Sonny’s Hideaway—the gorgeous restaurant and bar more than make up for the lacking aesthetics of the facade. Once inside, snag a seat at the bar and watch the masterful mixologists shake and stir to [...]

Some [...]

The Weekend Go Go: Flapjacks & Liquor, Angel Beer, and a Blind Tiger

Gear up, Go Goer’s.   The weekend’s most fun events all have drinking components. And that’s before we get to Cinco de Mayo. Can we do it? Si, se puede.

On the Waterfront Café

On the Waterfront Café

WHY Good German brats, fat pretzels and German beer on tap, including a hefeweizen that goes down very well on a sunny beach afternoon while the Boardwalk parade flows by.

The Weekend Go Go: Sunset Beer Floats. Eastside Handmade, Rock ‘n Juke Benefit, Grand Ole Echo

Go Go’ers, there are many situations when it’s important to hold on tight: a bar stool at 1:55 a.m., a Maserati on Mulholland Drive, and this past week on the windy streets of L.A. If you’ve survived the gale force winds of the last few days without rolling down the street like a tumbleweed, celebrate [...]

Gauchos Village

Gauchos Village

WHY One of the better-value churrascarias in town, at about $27 per person during the week and $35 on weekends, when sassy dancers entertain the crowd (we prefer the quieter weeknights, which are still not quiet).
