The High Rollers can’t wait to get “rollin” westward! We’re looking forward to playing with many of our old friends…and make some new fiendships during our visit. We are staying at he Travel Lodge a couple of blocks away from the arena and could use some recommendations for good eats nearby;)
I think there’re a couple places down by the waterfront, near the Aquarium of the Pacific. There’s also a Famous Dave’s somewhere in the area, but it’s a bit farther. (The area around said restaurant also has some other places, but I don’t remember what.) It’s been a while since I’ve been down there, though.
I personally probably won’t be there–I’ll be in Van Nuys Friday-Sunday at a collegiate engineering competition. (Anybody wants to come up Sunday, drop me a PM and I’ll send more info your way.)
Tons of good places by the Waterfront – the Yardhouse is always a favorite, Famous Dave’s for BBQ, and Gladstone’s for fish (and they give out free aquarium tickets).
If you venture a little further out to the Belmont Shore area, I’m a big fan of Taco Surf (fish tacos). Just going over to the Belmont Shore area in general would be easy to find something for everyone.
I am looking for someone to carpool with to the LA regional. I am volunteering as a robot inspector all day (7am til the end of the day) Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, unfortunately I live on campus at USC without a car. I was wondering if there was anyone nearby who I could carpool with, I’d really like to avoid the 90 minute bus and train ride, especially in the morning. Even if you can only help me out once or twice, it would make my commute a lot easier and be greatly appreciated. You can contact me via PM.
