Killing two birds with one stone is always a strong move, especially if you're Magic Johnson and one of those birds is Larry. Oh, and it's 1984, they get along great now. To simultaneously handle both your burgering and bottle service, hit up Damn Good Burger.
Finally opening tomorrow, DGB's mega-high ceilinged burger ballroom is chock full of crystal-drop chandeliers, classy super-padded stools, plus vintage Charlie Chaplin/ Elvis/ beer posters; the whole shebang thoughtfully is stacked under nightlife (and American Airlines Arena) neighbor Mia, meaning its upstairs VIPers can now get the downstairs patties with their bottle service. The joint's serious about its meat, with their brisket/ short rib Black Angus patties sandwiched into creations like the banh mi (single patty w/ pork belly, pickled veggies, jalapenos, and curry mayo) and the brie-/ onion marmalade-topped Uppity Cow, who's got plenty of beef with...whatever, it's just got beef. It's a cow. If you hate preordained fattening, stack your own single, double, or triple-patty meat mountains with toppings ranging from Gouda and bleu cheese, to avocado, chili, and truffle oil, to sauces like horseradish sour cream and miso mayo; buttress all that with sides like smokehouse chili and cheese fries, pineapple coleslaw, and a sauerkraut-covered frank called the Underdog, also what Xzibit says about the over/under of him making another album.
Booze spans from microbrews like Flying Dog Doggie Style and Magic Hat Circus Boy to spiked milkshakes including the Baileys cookies & cream, but to really sweeten the deal, tomorrow starting at 11a they're giving the first 300 customers free burgers, which at one point in his life, inspired Larry to kill multiple H.O.R.S.E.s.
