    Don't really see the buzz of this place. Long line on weekends, not so sure it's worth it. However, there is an amazing Philly cheesesteak truck late night. I'm a Philly native and I approve. Get one.

    Check out the monthly First Friday event on Abbot Kinney Blvd. Art galleries stay open late, serve up free wine, and have live music. Then hit up a food truck in The Brig’s parking lot for yummy food. Read more

    Remember when the Brig used to be cool with only O.G. Homies, bikers, and locals...where only the strong survived. The good old days...nothing like how Venice used to be. Yuppies made it lame.
