Yesterday, I was talking to a friend, who lives in the NoHo Arts District, about bars in proximity to the Red Line and she mentioned a dream that many share: "You know it was also be sweet if the subway was extended to 1 a.m. or later. We could bar hop into Hollywood and back!"

Little known to many, the red line actually has one train that travels beyond 1 a.m. I explained this and she was thrilled. "Wow it goes that late?!?! I thought the last train was around 10. I hate driving into Hollywood, finding parking, etc... the NoHo station is like a 10 minute walk from me."
