I am looking for suggestions for a get together for about 15-20 ppl on a friday evening near East L.A., Pasadena, downtown or those general environs. Something with drinks and appetizers or light dinner fare. Sushi is an option, as are any Asian spots. Guest of honor doesn't eat red meat.
I posted this question a couple of days ago, but still need some ideas. Someone kindly suggested the California Brewing co. in Alhambra, but I was there recently and didn't care for the food or atmosphere.
help, please! :)
