Eastside Happy Hour Spots?

I searched over the last year's posts and couldn't really find much/anything related to happy hour spots on the Eastside--preferably Los Feliz and Silverlake area. I have been to Vinoteca Faralla and they are pretty good but would like a new place--particularly one with both wine and beer specials and maybe some good appetizers. Also, not a dive bar place--more of a wine bar and/or spot with good outdoor seating...oh...and a place that has happy hour on Fridays (am I asking for too much I wonder?!)

Breakfast/cafes in San Fernando Valley

yum. The photos and the menu look great for the Watercress Cafe. This is definitely my destination next time I have to be up early! I tried Jinky's today as I had to venture out on my own before I got some of these suggestions. It was fine but I am never fond of the all-too-familiar huge portions that are at least two meals worth of food. I would much rather spend a little less and get a reasonable sized meal!

Breakfast/cafes in San Fernando Valley

I work in Northridge and sometimes have various meetings in the general area (Sherman Oaks, Pacoima, Burbank to name a few) and would love some breakfast or cafe ideas. I have read through the boards a bit but often lunch/dinner is mentioned and fewer early places. I live in South Bay so what that means is if I have to be in the valley in the morning, I leave really early and want somewhere to go during the 7-9 window before meetings. Any ideas for yummy, not-too-over-the-top fattening, veggie friendly, healthy food in the morning in the valley? (And an espresso that is not from Starbucks?)

Sources for Gourmet Chocolate in LA/Long Beach

Sadly, not a single person answered my plea asking where I can find Pralus chocolate locally so now I will simply beg for some hints as to where I can look for a wide selection of gourmet chocolate so I can keep trying to find it. It is too fabulous to miss--as good, if not better, than Amano and not quite as spendy (normally about $7-$8.50 for a 3.5 oz bar rather than that much for a 2 oz Amano bar). Fans of good chocolate please help!

Where can I find Pralus Chocolate in LA?

In a bit of poking around I found a few people mention Pralus but not where to get it. I miss it and have not been able to find it since I moved. I live in Long Beach, work in Northridge and am willing to drive for it so I am not too picky about location. Thanks!
