The Prodigy Invades SoCal
Review by Scott Cahill, Special to LAist
What do oyster shooters, corned beef tacos, the Pittsburgh Penguins Hockey Club, Hoegaarden beer and the English techno band the Prodigy all have in common? If you're answer was, "Name five things I experienced on Tuesday May 26, 2009", you'd be right.
The evening started a stone's throw from Angel Stadium, with the bartender at King's Fish House challenging me to do a shot of Cajun Power Garlic Sauce in exchange for one large premium oyster on the half shell. It was a challenge that I couldn't pass up, and what started off as a pre-concert nosh turned into a low-budget episode of "Man vs Food" with the evening not quite out of the starting gate. It was about this point I noticed that female employees at Kings Fish all seemed to have at least two different hair colors, with our bartender being no exception. I remembered the good old days when I used to have enough hair to experiment with, but not before I ordered three more oyster shooters from the Happy Hour menu. My cohort was unhappy with the fish tacos, citing the absence of fish so we decided to make a move.
