The Federal Bar — North Hollywood
Last week, I had the pleasure of visiting The Federal Bar in North Hollywood. The place has a relaxed and fun vibe. We tried several cocktails and menu items, and the clear winners for our party were an appetizer and a side dish: the Mac N’ Cheese (with vintage cheddar, chorizo, and broccoli) and the Bacon Brussel Sprouts (with goat cheese and balsamic). We also enjoyed the Sriracha Chicken Bao but mostly stayed away from the Maple-Glazed Sweet Potato Tots, which came off way too sweet.
For our main courses, we had Buffalo Chicken Pizza, a Federal Burger, and the Fennel Braised Short Rib. They were all good options for a night out drinking in North Hollywood.
Although I’m not a beer person, I tried the Abita Purple Haze and absolutely loved it. The cocktails were strong and delicious, but a tad too sweet for me. We finished off our meal with a beer float (my first) made with Old Rasputin and Chocolate Ice Cream. It blew my mind. Thank you to our awesome waitress and everyone at Federal Bar!

Hipster Hot Spot #1389: Fatty’s Public House - West Hollywood
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.
Pizza Rev: A REView - Northridge
It’s a Revolution! Correction: It’s A Pizza REVolution!
Face it: you’re bored of the same delivery pizzas at parties disappointing the pizza gods. Wanna go crazy and craft your own? PizzaRev is revolutionizing the art of artisan pizza. They’re in Studio City, Woodland Hills and Northridge. Like many other CSUN students, I head over to Reseda Blvd’s PizzaRev whenever I’m feeling creative.
