Prior to the Dodger Game with a 12:10 PM Start Time With Alcohol

Any recs besides Dim Sum and Tsing Tao that early in the area around Dodger Stadium?

  1. There must be places downtown.

    Pacific Dining Car has good breakfast, fwiw.

    I've never been to Taix, but my horse playing buddies like to drink there and watch horse races, is that any good?

    1. Well, Philippes serves wine ...

      1. If it's on the weekend, good microbrew has a TON of beers and is open at 9am... they fully endorse a beer to start the day... :)

          The 12:00 game this week is on Wednesday, Dommy.

          They used to call these "business man specials," though that term isn't used so much anymore. But if you watch the game on television, you'll see lots of guys in shirts and ties in the stands and these days they'll all be on their cell phones checking for messages.

          Yes, I am a wealth of trivial information.

            If it's on a weekday, you should definitely consider TRAXX in Union Station.

              Thanks, Traxx doesn't open until 11:30.

              Yeah, I remember those early bird week games, which is why I wanted to make sure. I agree with the Traxx rec... Bloody Mary!! :)

              1. They used to be 1:05 start times but, are now 12:10. That makes getting in a lunch and a few drinks much more difficult.
