3RD STREET PROMENADE
Taco Tuesdays

Just because Tuesdays tend to be an off-night for going out doesn’t mean that they have to be! I know, I know - working all day can really take it out of you, and for some, staying in, having dinner delivered, and watching HBO sounds perfect. But for the rest of us, a fun happy hour can really help take the edge off. For that reason, Taco Tuesdays proves to be an ideal way to spend a Tuesday evening.

Many Mexican restaurants in the L.A. area have a Taco Tuesday special—cheap tacos, discounted drinks, and an upbeat atmosphere. Because of the extremely reasonable prices, these deals are primarily offered during the typical happy hour time, but the exact times depend on the venue. These early hours are convenient for those who work full-time and embrace both a few hours out on the town to unwind after a long day as well as a good night’s sleep. On the other hand, because the places that offer Taco Tuesday specials tend to be part restaurant and part bar, it’s easy to stay out and keep the night going if you wish to do so.

“I remember snorting lines in the bathroom with Charlie Sheen back in the 80's. That's when I knew I really made it! Later we tag teamed a few bitches, but it's all a blur.” – Michael Starr joking about making it in Hollywood.

Formerly know as Metal Skool, this glam metal parody band is taking the sunset strip by storm. Hailed as the longest running metal show on Sunset, the spandex wearing bunch is drawing in celebrity audience members and dragging them on stage to sing along. From Lindsay Lohan to the members of Tool, every high name in town rushes to The Key club for the fabulous foursome: “Stix Zadinia” (Darren Leader), “Satchel” (Russ Parrish), “Michael Starr” (Ralph Saenz), and "Lexxi Foxxx” (Ravis Haley).
