Hooked on the Crazy Hook

Let me just come right out and say it. I'm not a huge Pirates of the Caribbean fan. Never have been. All of that swashbuckling just makes me feel sea sick. I know that for some folks such a statement might be enough to have me walk the plank, but it's the truth.

However, despite my shallow enthusiasm for the Pirates trilogy, and really, pirates in general, I do have a confession to make. I'm a regular at my friendly neighborhood bar, aptly named Crazy Hook.

Nestled (actually plunked might be a better term) on Wilshire Boulevard in the heart of Korea Town, Crazy Hook has everything for the inner pirate fan in all of us. Life size pirate mannequins, wenches hanging from the ceiling, and a décor that truly rivals the inside of any pirate ship I've ever seen, are just a few of the things you can expect to be entertained by on your first trip to the Hook.

And those aren't the only things to look forward to when you visit the Hook. Ordering food and drinks can be an adventure all by themselves.
