Last night a group of us went to the newly opened Beer and Wine bar 1642. Located on Temple just west of Glendale this place is literally .3 miles away from my house. Needless to say, I'm very excited.
A relaxed interior matched with a handful of select labels make this a perfect place for a causal drink. Think El Prado but without the scene (at least for now). Most liquids run between $5-8. If you are on a budget then get a can of Cold Spring Beer. It's 32 oz and only $5. Not bad.
Let's see how long it takes the owner to learn my name.
Finally, something I can walk to.
