Gotta Drank! The Bowery
The 80's keep on rocking and rolling at The Arclight Hollywood this week as screenings of Aliens and Back to the Future remind us how great they are. This would be my 2nd viewing of Aliens on the big screen while it was something like the 7th of BTTF. Yeah, that's a lotta Flux Capacitating! It's also week one of two of seeing Michael Biehn on the big screen as next Wednesday it's time for The Terminator. The crowds have been a little subdued this week but you can bet your ass I'll be clapping and getting rowdy for Arnold, Biehn, Cameron, Paxton and Henriksen. The last time I saw The Terminator, it was preceded the week earlier by a screening of The Abyss. Hopefully Navy Seals and Tombstone are next in my double Biehn screen viewing.
Anywho, before Aliens, we walked a couple blocks over to Vine where there's a slew of bar and restaurants like The Well, grilled cheese house The Melt, some Italian joint and The Bowery; a cozy and dimly lit establishment that claims to have the best hamburger in Los Angeles. I've had it and wasn't wowed but then again, it's served on an English muffin. To me, English muffins are only good if they're toasted to a nice crispy finish and slathered in butter. Bowery has some other tasty selections as well though on it's small menu. Happy Hour runs the entire week I believe from 4-7. As I'm fighting a cold, it was Hot Toddy time. You know, whiskey and hot tea with lemon and honey on the side? This might have been the best Hot Toddy I've ever had simply due to the fact that they gave me a shot glass full of honey with it.
Goodnight, future boy!
