I need you all like never before. I vow to give my first born up to anyone that can help me in this time of need. My BF of 8 years is turning the ripe age of 27 next Wednesday. The following weekend, Friday Oct. 5th, I have the responsibility of throwing a birthday shindig for him and about 20-30 of his friends. Grant it most of them are either students, just getting their careers started or are struggling artists/musicians. What does this mean? It usually means taco trucks and PBR but I would like it to fit that type of budget but be more...much more. I'm thinking maybe small plates or bar food. Maybe a place that has items you can buy ala carte. These guys aren't really foodies but I'm sure would appreciate more than cold fries and greasy pizza. We like our drinks strong and cheap as well. People will be trickling in and out all throughout the night so reserving a table won't work. We also need a place that can stay open late and is located centrally between North Hollywood, Silver Lake and Pasadena. I'm screwed aren't I? Oh please - help!!!
