I am flying to the city of the angeles Wednesday. We will meet for dinner and drinks Wednesday night at 6PM. If you have never been to one of these, you are missing out. Everyone is civilized and people bring something interesting to show (hat, jacket, pocket watch, B-17, etc). Some dress a bit more formal, others dress casual. If you are a member here you don't dress like a bum anyway. Come how you want. The question is where. A few people have suggested these places to meet. Let us know if you can attend by posting here and tell us where you rather go. :cheers1: So far we have: Matt Deckard Wild Root MK hatflick1 shamus Musso and Frank's. 6667 Hollywood Blvd Hollywood, CA Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner Tues.-Sat. You're in Raymond Chandler territory at Musso's. A Hollywood landmark since 1919, this place has the clubby look and feel to which newcomers like The Grill aspire. If nothing else, come for a Manhattan at the bar. When dining, expect brusque service and such old-fashioned favorites as grilled steaks and chops, beef stroganoff, sauerbraten, chicken pot pie, short ribs and cannelloni, or try the seafood 'chiffonade' salad full of shrimp and other delights from the sea. All made the old-fashioned way; there are no microwaves in the restaurant. The all-day breakfast menu includes omelets and pancakes, called flannel cakes (only served until 3 PM). You haven't been to Hollywood if you haven't been to Musso's -- a superstitious rite of passage for aspiring actors. The cat and the Fiddle 6530 Sunset Blvd. Hollywood, CA http://www.thecatandfiddle.com/ A Hollywood institution and a beloved watering hole for rockers, British expats and their friends, with an enormous and prettily lit outdoor patio and several cozy inside rooms (in one of them a fireplace blazes in winter), The Cat & Fiddle serves up a full bar, with about six beers on tap (from Fosters to Strongbow), and artery-clogging pub standards such as the ploughman's lunch, fish 'n' chips, mixed grill and steak-and-kidney-pie. Homesick English transplants can even buy bangers by the pound to take home. It's a super-comfortable spot to wile away a few hours over a pint any time (though the music inside gets pretty loud) and, when there's live music (call in advance for schedule), a place for a rocking good time. McDonald's http://www.mcdonalds.com/ throw a rock and you will hit one. A variety of American fast food served in little Styrofoam packages. The menus is mostly photos so you don't have to read. Just point and say " I want dat!" Patrons are encouraged to order french fries and soda pop with there entrÃ©e. If not the server will try to convince you that without these side orders that you aren't really eating a meal. Seating is in very colorful hard plastic chairs. Childcare is not provided but there is a play area. There is no dress code per say, but the advertisements for this establishment usually shows people depicted wearing very color clothing. BTW: I can bring Fedora Lounge Mugs for those who wish to buy them and save the shipping if you will let me know by Tuesday. UPDATE! We are meeting at Musso's.
