Looking for a place to throw a party for my friend Bill's 33rd birthday. We're a smallish (10-15) group of boisterous silverlake gay guys and hip girls with a smattering of cool straight dudes. No real requirements other than that it be tasty, cheap and serves booze (or at least BYOB). Not into the typical WeHo gay boy scene. Prefer Silverlake/Hollywood/KoreaTown/mid-Wilshire but open to other areas.
For an idea of what i'm looking for, past locales have included: Maria Ramada's, an off the radar Mexican joint in Hollywood-across from the Hollywood Star Lanes bowling alley, Samanluange Cafe Hollywood (in my humble opinion, it's the BEST Thai place in S. Cal) The Kitchen, and Cha, Cha, Cha, both in Silverlake. Thx in advance for your help.
