The Low Down
What to Eat: Celebrate "Burger Madness" all day Tuesday and Thursday, where the self-proclaimed "Best Damn Burgers in L.A." are served with fries, for only $3.99.

Where to Sit: The back patio can be reserved until midnight for a $200 deposit (which you can work off with the bar tab), every night, except Tuesday and Thursday.
