Pre-Game Beer and Street Food at The Mixing Room at L.A. Live, Starts October 7

The Mixing Room at the JW Marriott at LA Live will outfit their outdoor space with a beer bar, serving a rotating selection of local craft beers and street food before and during athletic games at the Staples Center. You can grab a bite and a brew before heading to the game, or stay and watch the game on their large screen.

The people from Golden Road Brewery is helping build the bar, so about 75% of the beer lineup will consist of Golden Road beers.
The bar wasn't ready yet, so we had their canned beers

Here is the schedule and some preview of what they will be serving:

October 7: Korean Taco (Korean shortrib / asian slaw / garlic red chili sause)
October 14: Mahi Mahi Ceviche Fresno pepper / cilantro / fresh lime / vegetable chips

October 21: Mediterranean Beef Skewers sumac aioli / couscous salad
October 28: Farmbread Grilled Cheese (gruyere / balsamic onion / roasted tomato)
Although it was more a roasted tomato sandwich with cheese rather than a "grilled cheese", this was one of my favorites from the ones I've tried.

November 4: Latin Tacos (beef tongue / salsa verde / cilantro / red onion)
November 11: BBQ Babyback Ribs chopped wedges salad/ kumquat
November 18:  Salvadoran Pupusas (braised chicken, onion, avocado, spicy red salsa / crema)
November 25: Turkish Style Lamb Slider, tomato jam, tzatziki
December 2: Traditional Beef Slider lettuce / tomato / aged cheddar / onion marmalade

December 9: Cuban Sandwich (braised pork / ham / mustard / housemade pickle vegetable)
Along with the grilled cheese, this was my other favorite. A great Cubano with a nice crusty bread, flavorful pork and plenty of ham.

December 16: New Orleans Duck Gumbo steamed rice and pickle okra
I like the twist here with the duck meat.

December 23: Cajun Shrimp Boil corn / mini potato / jumbo shrimp / mussel
