March 26th, 2008: The Green Frog

WEDNESDAY, March 26th, 2008

The Green Frog
13624 Moorpark Street
Sherman Oaks, CA 91423

In true World Dive Bar Tour fashion, we call on Tour Devotees to join us this Wednesday in celebrating St. Patrick’s Day nine days late at a bar with no discernable Irish heritage other than "Green" in its name.  Teetering on the verge of a health department condemnation since the day it opened, the Green Frog features games of darts and pool, comfy (albeit a bit filthy) seating in oversized red booths, a crowd ranging from grizzled dive veterans to young Valley Douchebags loudly discussing callbacks and Texas Hold’em Tournaments at the Commerce Casino, and a fine selection of cheap beer and liquor at a reasonable enough price (though at $5 for a pint of decent beer, the Executive Council suggests sharing pitchers to maximize economies of scale).

So pick up some discarded, vomit covered shamrock paraphernalia out of a nearby gutter, and confuse the locals by celebrating Old St. Patrick with us at the legendary Green Frog.

On this rare visit to the Northern Territories, the WDBT Executive Council also issues a strong recommend for Pre-Dive-Eats at the only dive bar with the audacity to declare itself as having "The best seafood in LA!" — the legendary Oyster House Saloon, just down the street at 12446 Moorpark.  Stop in for the dive bar ambience and drink selection, the 75¢ oyster shooter happy hour, and the heaping bowls of mussels and linguini, but only if you’re truly brave enough to attempt a dive bar double header.

As usual, the casual debauchery starts around 9PM and gets really interesting by 10:00. Come for one drink, or stay for one too many. Bring anyone and everyone, and join us for a great time in the middle of the week. If you arrive early or late, look for the people having a damn good time (it’ll be us), or start having a damn good time on your own (we’ll find you).

Carpe Drink’em,

Alex, Damien, & Travis - WDBT Co-czars

The World Dive Bar Tour is your bi- weekly, Wednesday night stop for adventure, drinks, and professional networking in Los Angeles. 2012 will offer an eclectic lineup of seedy and swanky joints to soften your liver and relax your inhibitions, and an in-your-face assortment of auxiliary events, just in case 25 different bars in one year wasn't enough.
