Short Order is skilled at making hamburgers. You have probably already heard this somewhere. And if you have eaten at Short Order, then you know—the burgers are hella good. Since you already know that, let’s talk about the other awesome stuff on the menu.
The following post is your guide to eating at Short Order without ordering a single hamburger.
Step 1) Let the bartender recommend a drink.
On this visit to Short Order, we dined at the breezy upstairs bar. This exposed bar patio can get chilly at night. So if it’s cold, order the Maple Syrup Hot Toddy. If you’re already nice and toasty, try the refreshing and not-too-sweet Jackie O (above).
What do you get when you pair eclectic dishes with strong-ass drinks? Fatty’s Public House in WeHo of course!
The former residence of Fatty Arbuckle is now a newborn gastropub on the west side of La Cienega Blvd, smack dab in the middle of Santa Monica Blvd. and Melrose Ave. If you weren’t that hungry on your way, you’ll be good and starved by the time you find parking. ($8 Valet)
Fatty’s is a bit fancier than our usual hangouts, but pinch your pennies and trust that it’ll be worth the splurge. Super mellow by day, hipster hot spot by night.
Let’s get down to business. The first thing I did was take advantage of their full bar. All of the signature crafted cocktails sounded great, but I picked “Life of the Party” because I’m modest. My wilder friend went for “Desert Hero” for more of a kick.
Brunch, Quick Booze or a simple no b.s. dinner…
When I want something fast I come to Basix. The wait staff has come to know me by name. I come here 2–3 times a month or more.
If you are ever in West Hollywood and want a place for brunch, look no further. I mean, there are others in town that are pretty good too…but, if we’re looking for VALUE, I think you get more for your buck here.
Nothing better than an amazing brunch and this place right in the heart of downtown Palm Springs gets every note right.
OK, OK, I know this blog is usually about food and what not, but you can find food among the hottest of the hottest bikini clad babes and fellas as well. It’s HOT as hell during the summer months, so it’s almost a necessity to grab a seat near the pool and stay in the water at all times and have the waitstaff bring over multiple cocktails and finger foods to keep you sane. Not to sound bougie, but you are definitely going to want to stay refreshed and fed. So you stay alive, not fried.
30:SECONDmendations, Dogfish Head Punkin Ale
Here is your review of Dogfish Head’s fall-only beer, Punkin Ale, in less than 30 seconds. Ben likes flavored beers more than Drew, but they both agree that this beer is yummy.
What we recommend: Drink one by itself first, and then make beer cocktails with this stuff. Some good cocktail ideas are here: http://goo.gl/BomD3
Pros: Great balance. An all-around good beer, and it tastes like autumn. Drink it :)
Cons: Pumpkin beers usually taste like pumpin pie, and this one is no exception. You had better like the taste of pumpkin before digging-in.

A fresh taste on food West of the 405
Oh… my … god! That’s the sound of me having to be resuscitated after eating the braised pork at West restaurant in the Angeleno Hotel. These little nuggets of pork melted in my mouth and the apple topping was a great burst of sweetness that complimented the pork so well. Seriously, the pork was cooked to perfection and it changed my life.
