Want to REALLY hang with your friend circle (both guys and girls) and TRULY catch up in a comfortable and easy going way...but want to be out and about and not stuck in someone's house or apartment? Want to be able to talk without yelling over a crowd or blaring music?
Well, lets give you what you and your friends want...and in Hollywood proper NO LESS!
4:00pm - 6:00pm - RUSTY MULLET - 1708 N Las Palmas Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90028
Cheap American beer and tatter tots. Now if that doesn't feel like home, I don't know what does. A great way ease into the day. Grab a table by the huge open windows where you can literally reach out and touch the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Let the afternoon lazily cruise by as you people watch the locals and tourists and get caught up the lives in your friends.
7:00pm - 8:00pm - LUCKY STRIKE - 6801 Hollywood Blvd, Hollywood, CA 90028
Now that everyone up to date with one, it's time for a little friendly competition. And it's the best kind, bowling and team camaraderie. Split up teams in a fun way...boys vs. girls, Westside L.A. vs Eastside L.A. residents, etc...and make sure to split up any couples in your friend circle. It just makes it more fun. Lucky Strike is a 3 minute walk from Rusty Mullet, so don't worry if you got a bit tipsy off the cheap beer. It might actually help your score!
8:00pm - 9:30pm - MUSSO & FRANK - 6667 Hollywood Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90028
A quick walk down Hollywood Blvd. and you will be at Musso & Frank, Hollywood's oldest eatery. Proudly serving Hollywood since 1919. With worn-leather booths and a 90-year old classic menu specializing in steaks, chops and roasts, you cannot go wrong. Feel the vibes of old patrons such as Charlie Chaplin, Gary Cooper, Elizabeth Taylor and Steve McQueen. But now it is you and your friends, feeling like the stars you are. Get comfortable and enjoy the food and conversation.
9:30pm-??? THE PARLOUR ROOM - 6423 Yucca St, Los Angeles, CA 90028
Another quick walk, this time north and off Hollywood Blvd. is a place to sit back, grab a drink, listen to music (played at the perfect volume) and breathe in the fresh, night air. You want to start here at a earlier time (9:30pm) so you can nab a table in the outdoor patio portion of the establishment. You will feel like you are in someone's backyard, but without all the cleanup and worry. A nice "home" feel for a good group of friends like you have. And if you get hungry on your way out, there is a taco truck waiting for your friends right outside on the street. Now that is service.
With everything in walking distance, you and your friends have spent quality time and taken in Hollywood, CA. You have bonded and learned more about your friends than other day you have all spent together. In other words, a perfect day.
