    Go here before a game at the Ravine, get some cheap beer, then wait for the tamale guy. $6 for 2 tamales, usually cheese and chicken. You can even bring them into the stadium.

    Cool spot. Check out the old beer can collection on the way out to the patio. Also, try and say beer can without sounding like a Jamaican saying bacon...

    On busier nights, look for the tamale guy! He stops in, peddling deliciously cheap tamales to the incredibly tipsy crowd. Olé! Read more

    Catch a game of pool, cards, or hit the arcade with a nifty drink in hand and a diverse crowd of Dodgers fans sipping on the herbal wonders of Becherovka.

    If you like drinking $2 beer's before the Dodger game then the Short Stop is your kind of bar. Once a favorite hangout for the LAPD it is now a spot for Dodger fans, locals and hipsters.

    The Shortstop features old cop memorabilia, a great pool table, a photo booth, and great drinks. It's a sprawling space that's great for meeting all your friends. -Ashley Merriman, Top Chef

    Fun pool table. Gets the drunken spill over from little joy's table. Watch out for the rowdy crowds after Dodgers games.

    Arrive about 2 hours before a Dodger game, and park yourself in a corner near the billiards table. LA tailgating at its finest.
