Driving around with a buddy after work yesterday looking for a good place to get some appetizers/noshing and some good drinks with a good bar scene.
Didn't know where to go, traffic sucked, ended up going to Jones' on Formosa and Santa Monica Blvd. Food was beyond horrible (fried rubber calimari and Tontinos BBQ chicken Pizza), scenery was nice, drinks were strong.
Looking for recos for some place to go after work with friends, get some decent food, some good drinks. Doesn't need to be necessarily happy hour or whatever, but some place not too pricy.
