I head to OC several times in the offseason to do some work on my condo before it get's shown or rented for the summer. After a days work repairing and cleaning I look for a cold beverage or two. However, I usually have to drive but would rather walk (I know there's a bus, but it's cold outside). So I am looking for a good bar that's within walking/crawling distance of 12th street. I've seen "Pickles" nearby but haven't been there 'cause the name kinda bothers me. Seems most club/bars in this area are closed for the season. I'd rather walk 10 to 20 blocks than drive. Any recommendations?
And, if you see me crawling the wrong way, point me towards 12th! Thanks.
