We've hit Hollywood in June and Culver City in July, so this time for August, we're going to a place with an outdoor patio for an ALL AGES meet-up at Malibu Fish Grill.
They have great happy hour prices on drafts (half price) and $4-5 wines, as well as some really healthy and tasty food specials!

PUBLIC TRANSIT OPTIONS: Metro Local 2/302 (east/west between Santa Monica and Downtown LA) has a stop right at Sunset and Crescent Heights; the Metro Local 218 coming from Studio City/SFV or south, in the opposite direction, also has a stop right on Sunset.
Coming from Hollywood area or the subway (Hollywood Highland Red Line Station), you can take Local 218 or Rapid 780 from Hollywood Boulevard, stopping two blocks east of the restaurant at Fairfax and Sunset.
It's also a short, only slightly (barely) uphill walk from Santa Monica and Crescent Heights or SMB and Fairfax if folks want to take the Local 4 or the Rapid 704 (east/west routes) on Santa Monica Boulevard.
Malibu Fish Grill is located in a building with an underground parking garage - however, there are some popular businesses here, including Crunch Fitness, Sundance Cinemas and a small Trader Joe's so allow plenty of time to find a parking space. Garage and direction info can be found here: http://8000sunset.com/parking/
Public transit or car pooling/ride sharing is strongly encouraged.
