Naja's Place Redondo Beach Pier, Redondo Beach. CA




Naja's what can I say about this place but that it's one of my favorite places to go for beer!!! And I love beer. They have a huge quantity of beers on tap-they will actually be adding some at the end of this month when they do a little renovation. The owner told me last night he hopes to have about 80 different beers-80 beers! Yummy!!!

Naja's is an awesome place to just go and hang out! It's a dive bar, so don't expect anything special but great beer!!! Food is available, it's bar food. But since it sits on the Redondo beach Pier there are tons of restaurants around.

They are open 7 days a week-please check their calendar for they are closing at the end of Feb 2008 for some renovation. On the weekends, two different bands play and it can be quite busy. I usually like to go on off days-it's a little quieter...and then in the afternoons. In the summer, they open the windows and you can sit drink a beer, watch the boats and get a beautiful ocean breeze and catch a sunset!!
It's a GREAT place!!! Love it!

Crimsin, San Pedro, California





Kinda Red in here-ok it's Crimsin! Word of note-they have happy hour everyday from 5-7 which means $2 off each drink. Really nice beer selection on tap
  • Stella
  • Shiner Bock
  • Guinness
  • Fat Tire
and a few others. the beer price for happy hour is great-you can get a nice beer on tap for $3. That's what i should have done, instead we had a glass of wine, reguler price $8, and a martini, $11. I think the martini price is steep considering this is a bar in San Pedro and not Hollywood. But that's me.

We went for happy hour-quiet crowd early in the evening. it sipposedly becomes the place for the 20-40 somethings later on in the evening. Music playing and of course the crimsin lights. No Food....so eat before you go!!

Best bet-happy hour and order beer!

Berri's Playa Cafe - Playa Del Rey, California




So Playa Del Rey, a small beach community stuck between LAX and Marina Del Rey. I don't often go to Playa, but a few friends have moved there, so i find myself frequenting the beach community a bit more now. This day we decided to meet at Berri's which sits on Pershing Drive at Manchester. I think they are known for their pizza-so we had pizza. Since I don't eat meat I ordered a veggie selection and my friend shoved pepperoni on her half. It wasn't bad-thin crust. But my feeling is it's kinda really hard to screw up pizza.

There were a few people in eating today(it was around 2pm). One gentleman had just flown in from Arizona and was craving their Lobster Pizza-hmm...Lobster Pizza-not for me! But he seemed to love it.

We sat at the bar and our bartender was Samuel-he makes a pretty decent Bloody mary. I like them spicy-but they didn't have celery! Next time I'll bring my own celery stalk! Ha! My friend ordered a margarita.

We had a nice time-it was quiet so we got our choice of the tv station and our bartender was very attentive to our drinking needs!
