A killer patio and cheap beer in Hollywood

In Hollywood, the intersection of affordability and location takes place at the massive garden patio of The Cat & Fiddle, which's been providing the not-famous and the just-not-famous-yet affordable booze in a vegetal wonderland for over thirty years. Every Sunday evening the sound of live jazz rises from the patio, while KCRW DJ Miguel Cotto holds court on Wednesday night, with weekly specialty cocktails on discount throughout the night.Their new chef launched a weekend brunch menu (blueberry pancakes, nutella crepes, etc) to be enjoyed at a table much like this one, only less done up for a wedding.They've even got you covered in the event of inclement weather, with activities including monday night movie screenings ($10 for a pie & a pint), Tuesday trivia, and a monthly dart tournament, which you should crush considering your practice at going to bars, throwing stuff out there, and hoping it'll stick.Photos: The Cat & Fiddle
