Good news for lobster roll fans in Pasadena: Cousins Maine Lobster is opening at LIV MIXX nightclub on Friday.

Though the pairing of crustaceans and club gear might sound odd, it's not the first time we've seen this sort of pairing. Remember that now-defunct SBE spot called Industry? The burgs and fries were decent, especially after a night of bottle service, but unless you're one of those uber-hot Carl's Jr. models, shaking your bootie while stuffing your face just isn't sexy. (Have you seen the minis these days? There's no room to wiggle without a meal.) It was nice to have an in-house place to grab a bite though, and it was a break from the bacon-wrapped hot dog routine. So who knows, maybe this could be a good spot for Cousins.There certainly is plenty of foot traffic during weekday lunch hours and on weekend nights. And the restaurant will have extended hours beyond that of the club, operating on Monday-Saturday from 11:00 a.m.-10:00 p.m. and Sunday from 10:00 a.m.- 9:00 p.m., making way for the office crowds too.

Wether you're there on the late night or just swinging by for lunch, Cousins Maine Lobster Truck will be offering items like lobster rolls (both the mayo-based Maine-style and the buttery Connecticut kind), crab salad rolls, lobster cobb salads, shrimp rolls, fried clams, lobster bisque, and clam chowder inside LIV.

And though it might not be traditional drunchies here in Cali, at least there's a guarantee that the product is fresher than the street meat you'll usually eat after a night out on the town; Cousin's flies their product in daily from the icy waters of Maine, going "shore-to-door" within 24 hours.
