hey ya'll i'm meeting some old high school friends tomorrow night and need some suggestions, especially for drinks (i think they can really put em away). there is no way in hell i want to drive over to century city on a friday night, so i'm looking for a place(s) that is/are closer to me. i have no idea what kind of food they like, but i'd like to take them to a place that is quintessentially LA, minus the price tag. i was thinking of the tiki ti or something along those lines, but it's $10/drink there and a little far fro them to drive (what about el compadre?). so if you know of any cool places that have a good happy hour (esp one that offers some chow), please chime in... thanks again!
