Please join us this Sunday the 8th for our First Friday, (which is technically a second Sunday) at the new Yard House in Marina Del Rey.
We’ll be starting at 2 pm and will have tables set up inside next to the bar.
The Yard House boasts one of the largest tap selections around and they also offer a ‘Chalkboard Series’ of seasonal/rare beers on draft.

For those who haven’t been to this new location, there’s tons of free parking in the garage, which you can enter either on Maxella or Glencoe ave. There is also lots of bike parking in the garage if you’d rather arrive on two wheels.

See you there!

First Friday June 7th at Cinco in Westchester

Hi members, just a quick announcement that this month’s First Friday will be at the newly opened Cinco, which has received good reviews so far from members who have sampled their wares.  They have a pretty extensive tap list focused on LA and OC breweries with a showing of old favorites in Southern California like Lost Abbey.  The menu is Latin driven small plates and is reasonably priced.  There is plenty of parking and they have reserved the lounge area for us.  Hope to see you on Friday!

First Friday – The Overland

Join us tonight for our first Friday event at The Overland in Palms.  Best know for their bottomless champagne brunch on the weekends, by day The Overland Cafe serves up breakfast and lunch to local residents and Culver City’s finest.  By night The Overland turns into a craft beer bar with a tap list originally selected by our own Tomm Carroll.  Our normal start time is 7 PM, but you should know about their ripping happy hour: 1/2 price beer and wine 4pm – 7pm & 9pm – close.

First Friday at Irish Times

Pre-celebrate St. Patty’s day with us at our local Irish dive.  They’ve got a good selection of European and local ales, and serve food.  I heard they once won an award for pouring the perfect pint of Guinness.  If you know the neighborhood, you know parking can be problematic as the night gets on.  We start at 7 PM or whenever you get done with work.


First Friday at Steingarten – February 1st

Our next first Friday event will be held at Steingarten LA on February 1st, starting at 7 PM.  If you have been with the club for a few years you will definitely remember the last time we went here.  Steingarten offers an extensive bottle list and a well curated tap selection   It also hosts a mixologist that has developed a menu of custom cocktails and even creates their own bitters.  I can personally vouch for the food, they offer a huge variety of standard, gourmet,  and game sausages and they do an excellent build your own burger.  There are salads and small plates for those who are so inclined.

Steingarten LA is extremely home brewer friendly.  They have given us dedicated space in the front room and I am certain that they will have appetizer and drink specials for us.  The last time we had a First Friday here we filled the front room to capacity and spilled out onto the benches in the main dining room.  I’ve never had trouble parking on Pico when I have visited, but be prepared to walk a block or two.  I certainly hope to see you there in February!

First Friday – Daily Pint

Happy New Year, Pacific Gravity!  I hope everyone had a safe and enjoyable holiday and that you all are looking forward to some fun and excitement in 2013,  I’m still putting together the calendar of events for 2013, so we don’t have a formal First Friday for today.  That said, I’ll be at the Daily Pint tonight at 7 PM, so please join me there if you feel the desire to hoist a glass or two.

First Friday – City Tavern

Join me on December 7th at City Tavern in Culver City for our First Friday event.  City Tavern has a pretty big tap list and they turn them fast so there is always something on offer that I have never heard of before.  They also have a nice menu of burgers, sandwiches, and entrees as well as small plates if you want to eat tapas style   I spoke to Matt, the general manager, last night and they are looking forward to our attendance.  Park in one of the many parking structures in downtown Culver City for free and walk over.  Official start time is 7 PM but I will be there as soon as I get off work.

First Friday at Wurstkuche

Tomorrow, November 2nd, our First Friday event will be at Wurstkuche in Venice Beach.  If you have never been to their downtown or Venice location, this is the time to go.  They serve gourmet and specialty sausages,Belgian fires, rare and specialty sodas, and of course an excellent selection of Belgian and German beers.  There are plenty of public transportation options and bike parking, so leave the car at home and have an extra beverage.  The event officially starts at 7, but it’s casual so show up when you like.
