Chowhounders - I'm planning a bachelor party for a friend in your lovely city. About half the attendees will be locals and the rest of us are out of town. It's a good friend so I'm happy to help but am hindered by the fact that I'm not a local and only know about 20% of the folks coming.
We're a fun bunch in our late 30's to early 40's...we're not looking for anything super fancy and steakhouses are out given about 4 veggies...including the bachelor. There will be 10-12 of us and it's kind of an eclectic mix of professionals, scientists, surfers, bohemians, etc. so I'm having a hard time pinning down a great spot.
Any places you fine folks can suggest that will have a fun atmosphere, not crazy pricey or pretentious and will also have good food. I wouldn't call us a sports bar or a Gaslamp crowd (although we are staying near there).
Thank you in advance!
