Eastside happy hours? (Los Feliz, Glendale, Atwater, etc.)

Thanks! Will check them out. Just tried Chevy's in Burbank this past weekend. The happy hour appetizer menu now only has four items! Quality was just ok...it's a chain, right?

Eastside happy hours? (Los Feliz, Glendale, Atwater, etc.)

Are there any good happy hours on the Eastside? I'm looking for good, cheap food, and maybe drinks too. Just want a cheap place to go after work for some apps and conversation.

Used to like the Chevy's in Glendale, but they closed. Looking for something in Atwater, Los Feliz, Silverlake...that whole area.

Thanks!

Birthday bar recs for Silverlake/Los Feliz/Eagle Rock

I'm looking for a bar recommendation for a birthday gathering for about 10-15 people in SL/LF/ER. I'd like someplace where we can hear each other (music not too loud). I was thinking someplace like Edendale/Mixville, but wanted to see if there were other suggestions out there.
Thanks!

Peruvian spices in LA or Long Beach?

I'm in search of a few Peruvian spices for a chicken recipe a friend gave me. Any suggestions for where in LA or Long Beach I can find huacatay paste, aji yellow paste, and ground achiote (annato)? I'm assuming other cultures use these too, but I was told the recipe was Peruvian...Thanks!

Tasty Thai Food in Long Beach or North O.C.?

I second the endorsement for Long Beach Restaurant on Redondo and Anaheim. It's by far the best Thai I've had in Long Beach. Just make sure to ask for no-MSG if that's what you want.

good coffee in Long Beach?

Re: Portfolio...I've had mixed experiences there. The one time I had coffee there, it was pretty good. Not burnt, which was a new experience for me in LB. The other time I went was an open mike night. I went around 10:30pm (they were closing at 11pm) and they had already shut down the steamers, so they were only serving tea or bottled juices. Really disappointing. And the staff can be a little rude.

Are there any fun, inventive restaurants in Long Beach?

Thanks everyone! You have me feeling better about moving down here!

Are there any fun, inventive restaurants in Long Beach?

I just moved down to Long Beach from the heart of LA, and really miss all the fun options I used to easily be able to pick from. Am I missing some key restaurants that pack a lot of flavor down in Long Beach? I haven't found anything too exciting, and am looking for something that I can't cook at home (or wouldn't think to cook at home). Any inventive restaurants out there?
