    I just a great spot to munch and drunch. The pretzels are a must, bigger than your face and softer than your belly.

    This place is crawling with drunkeness, first clue not to eat the food unless its to sober up. Bartenders mix good drinks & the door guys are hot. Unisex bathroom probably freaks out tourists.

    Avoid the crowds out front: head inside & straight to the little beer garden out back.

    Sunset Happy Hour occurs weeknights from 6-8 pm. Right by the beach on the Venice Boardwalk you can snag half price German beer on draft and house wines, plus $1.50 Budweiser and $2.25 Coronas. Read more

    You MUST have the Erdinger. Delicious. They also have happy hour food specials and a beer garden on the weekends and all summer. I can't pronounce it, but the Zurcher Gschnatzlets is the BEST! Try it!

    Order pitchers of Erdinger and watch the sunset and passerbys on the Venice Boardwalk. Just laze the day away with friends and people watch.

    if cars start driving down the boardwalk in front of the waterfront, throw food at them.
