Need a place to get drinks w/ ex-girlfriend. TONIGHT.

Max it was. The night was a success, and that place was great.

Need a place to get drinks w/ ex-girlfriend. TONIGHT.

Should be more "classy" than "divey." Aside from that, it just has to be within about a half hour drive from Sherman Oaks.

Please help. :)

birthday party in Old Town Pasadena?

I'm trying to decide on a restaurant for a birthday party in Old Town Pasadena, something slightly upscale and good for a party of about eight of us. None of us are big drinkers, so maybe something more subdued. Right now we're considering Saladong Song. Any other recommendations?

Thanks!!!

casual, interesting date place w/ potential for a quiet walk afterward

Thanks for all the suggestions, guys. Nobody walks in L.A., right? :p I'll let you know how it goes...

OK, here's a sort of strange solicitation... but I'm looking for something really specific.

Anyone know of a place to go for a casual, interesting date for dinner or dessert where afterwards you could easily just up and take a nice, quiet walk around?

A good example would be Aroma Coffee and Tea in Studio City...

Anyone have any input on something like this?

Thanks!

Dark, romantic, not too expensive

So I ended up going to Tasca... it was indeed kind of dark and sort of romantic, and small... though just as we got there, there was a family with a couple kids who were screaming and running around. Fortunately, they left about five or ten minutes after we got there. That could totally ruin a dinner there, date or not.

"Not too expensive" is subjective. My date and I got five small dishes (they recommended six) between the two of us and it came out to about $70 after tax and tip.

Food was good, not amazing, but pretty good. Service was great.

I'd recommend it to people who live around there. It looks like they're trying hard to make the place work.

Thanks again for everyone's suggestions!!

Dark, romantic, not too expensive

Hey guys,

Been lurking this board for a while and love it.

Got a date this weekend and am looking for someplace dark, romantic and not too pricey. Hoping to keep it around or under $50-60 for two of us. Trying to avoid any place that's loud or crowded. East side, west side, doesn't really matter... Open to any kind of cuisine.

Any suggestions?

Thanks!!
