Since we were still in the middle of a heat wave, we opted for white wine and sangria, both $7 a glass. The sangria was just right: not too sweet, not too full of fruit. The only complaint is that there was more ice than sangria in the first glass so it finished pretty quickly.
When you go to a happy hour directly across the street from Cedars Sinai, you can’t help but have fantasies of McSteamy look-a-likes coming in after a hard days work. We saw plenty of female medical staff, but not one man.
The longer we were at The 3rd Stop, the more we realized the location is kinda a weird one. There are lots of ambulances that come by that our conversation had to be muted several times while we waiting out the sirens. At one point, we saw an ambulance slowly loading in a patient. When trying to get happy at happy hour, looking at sick man on a stretcher is kind of sad. All you want to do is help. There is also a bus stop directly in front of the bar, which makes you feel like you need to wave at the passengers or something.
We would go The 3rd Stop if in the neighborhood, but wouldn’t randomly stop by.
