Easy, quick dinner near Orpheum Theater in downtown

FWIW, you're only half a mile away from Nickel Diner on Main.

They aren't picky. They just want the card.

Aroma Cafe Hollywood - Report

Can't speak to this location, but the Encino/Tarzana rendition is very loud. The waitresses are probably working on expired visas looking for green card marriages. There's a lot of patio smoking. You get a lot of "scene" for your money.

I've been to shows at the Orpheum. The doors open early around 7 and the shows generally start between 8 and 8:15. Remember they need some time to get the crowd to line up and get wrist bands and run the security gauntlet. And they do want to sell pre-show drinks.

It's doors at 7. Show's at 8. They need time to sell drinks and souvenirs.

Paprika Potato Chips?

Well, Lay's BBQ chips seem to feature some paprika. And you could join (or get your firm to join) Amazon Prime (free shipping).

LA restaurant not too far from Woodland Hills

Rent a car. Drive over Topanga Canyon to Pacific Coast Highway during the day and have a casual lunch with very very fresh seafood at Malibu Seafood.

Surely you Charles can appreciate the concept of evolution in the history of restaurants. Let's wait and see how it evolves.

I thought he just got out?
It's 5 pm somewhere, I think I'll go order a Vesper Martini kindly served up by some charming server (preferably one as familiar with the works of Henry Miller as with the writings of de Beauvoir, Freidan, Steinem and Hooks).

Good calls. Although I think Claude is not available on weekends unless you do a special event there.
