There'll be between 10-20 of us, probably; mostly male; between 20-50 years old and resolutely unhip. We're coming from all over the place (London being the most distant) and would like to get together on a Friday night a couple of weeks from now.
We're looking for a place in Santa Monica or West L.A. Should have enough room for us to have a good time without disturbing others; beer, at least; maybe cheap eats. We want to talk, so no loud music (though maybe a place that brings a band in later in the evening would be OK, so long as there's no cover!).
The last one we had was at the Cat & Fiddle in Hollywood, which was perfect. One before that was at a Shakey's, which was also perfect, 'cept i seem to be the only one who liked it.
