HLA COCKTAIL MEET – Tonga Hut, Thurs, 1/28, 7:15-9:15

tongahut©LAeaterUPDATE: We now have an official Facebook Event listing!

Okay, a bunch of you on Facebook expressed interest in getting together for a HiddenLA happy hour of sorts (YAY!) and the 52 year-old local tiki dive known as Tonga Hut came out far ahead of most other favorite local valley bars in our poll… so that’s where we’re going! The next happy hour will be on the other side of the hill… we’ll rotate, just for you. :)

The Tonga Hut is located at12808 Victory Boulevard in North Hollywood (818-769-0708). You can park on the street in front, but it’s probably better to just swing around to the parking lot behind the bar.

I’m excited, and I hope you can make it! Either way it’ll be great… if you all do show up we’ll have a blast – it’ll be great to finally be able to start to put 3D faces to the many names I see on here. I’d especially love to talk to those of you who are interested in helping with the charity aspect of this site that I’m working on starting. And hey… if you *don’t* show up, s’okay. I’ll just have a prime opportunity to drown myself in Mai Tais and slur to the bored bartender my pathetic tale of how Los Angeles rejected my party invite and totally stood me up. WAH. A few years of therapy I should be totally okay! No worries!

Seriously, it’d be nice to see ya there though… :)

Sincerely,  Lynn

The Unknown Angeleno

We met our first, utterly delightful Unknown Angeleno while enjoying a sunset dinner with visiting friends from Montana. (Shout out!)

Where we met her: Yamashiro’s
Occupation: Food server
Has lived in L.A. for: 15 years
Why we chose her: She was very sweet. And she serves up an awesome lychee martini. We’ll do anything for a lychee martini. Well, *almost* anything.

THE UNKNOWN ANGELENO’S FAVORITE THINGS

1. “Even though I’m Japanese, there are a lot of really great Korean places I like to go for Happy Hour. They have really good deals and great people. I can’t read the menus at all, but that doesn’t matter. I’ve had a lot of fun.”

2.$15/hour foot massages in San Gabriel. You can’t beat them.”

3. “Definitely horseback riding in the hills above Beachwood Canyon.” (One hour is $25. Two hours is $40. And hey, look! Old photos!)
