Post-Dodgers Game Snack

rds246 May 11, 2007 02:07 PM

My friends and I are going to the game tonight, and I've been looking through old dodgers stadium threads wondering where we could go afterward for a Cheap bite to eat. The game doesn't start until 7:40, and its fireworks night, so we're going to need someplace that is open late! any suggestions?

    The correct answer is the Bright Spot on Sunset. It's on your way home from the Stadium. It's open 24 hours and it has great diner food!

      +1 for Little Tokyo. Izayoi specifically.

        Once the game is over, some happy hours may be starting again. It's not exactly next door, but Weiland's will have their discounted menu from 10 to close along with cheap beers. Little Tokyo, 1st/Alameda.

          Try the Red Lion Tavern on Glendale Blvd. for great German food and beer. It has been around for a long time, and the food is good and hearty, the atmosphere totally old school and dark and cool. Though I am not sure how late they are open. Probably at least till 10 or 11.

              We went to Red Lion Tavern before the game a few weeks ago and it was very cool -- with great (cheap) food and beer selction.

                They are open until 2 a.m. but this place will be slammed with Silverlake hipsters tonight. My girlfriend is a server/bartender there and it gets overwhelming busy on Friday nights.

                  Red Lion Tavern is great. is the old accordion player still there, the one who takes requests for Van Halen songs?

                  With the parking mess...you may be even later.

                  I would try chinatown somewhere, if any place is open...especially since it's so close. So is Olvera st and little tokyo (relatively)

                    FULL HOUSE, the Cantonese the great standby, is open to at least 4:00!

                    Where is your ultimate destination - in terms of city - after the game?

                      we'll be going to west hollywood eventually, but I was looking for recs nearby the stadium. There are plenty of places in my neighborhood that I can explore regularly, but I don't go to Dodgers games that often. so while I'm there...

                        Have you ever been to the Pacific Dining Car downtown? If you want something more divey there is the Original Pantry. Both of these are open 24 hours.

                            Whoops - overlooked that one vital word. It is not cheap.

                              New idea. Go to Krua Thai Restaurant in North Hollywood. Not right by the stadium but that time of the night you will be there in 20 minutes on the freeway. Excellent food and open until 3:30 A.M.
