Silver Lake Stairs & Wine or Beer

We had such a great time on the Echo Park Stairs and Beer Walk, let's move over to Silver Lake and do the samething.

This is a short but challenging walk. About 2 miles and only four staircases, the last three come almost one right after the other.

1. Hidalgo Up 90
2. Earl Up 219
3. Loma Vista Up 182 Down 166
4. Edendale Up 147

Time: Please arrive at Gingergrass by 6:30pm. Walk will start promptly at 6:45pm.

Meeting Place:

Gingergrass Restaurant
2396 Glendale Blvd
Los Angeles, CA

At the corner of Glendale Blvd and Brier, just south of the Bank of America.

Parking

Free parking further up on Brier or streets like Silver Lake Blvd, Hidalgo, or McCready.

Do not park on Glendale Blvd and Brier closer to Gingergrass, unless you want to pay for metered parking.

Pace- Moderate pace but the walk will take finish in 1 hour.

Afterwards you have two options:

Silverlake Wine. Across Glendale Blvd. from Gingergrass.

Thursday nights they have wine tasting, 4 flights for $15. Sometimes there is a food truck outside Silverlake Wine.

Red Lion Tavern-about 50 yards south of Gingergrass.

A German Hofbrau that is now owned by Russians! My experience is that service is rude and very slow here. But, ymmv. Their menu is filled with traditional German food. But, the beers are cold and the atmosphere is nice.

I'm going to do the wine tasting then join the group at Red Lion Tavern.

Reminders:

No crashers- Please sign up for this event. Please do not just show up.

RSVP limits are set, because I don't want a huge group on these walks. So, if you RSVP only for yourself, don't bring a guest.

Please keep your RSVP updated and current. Remember our 3 no shows and you're out policy.

There usually are no restrooms along these walks. Restrooms are usually only available at the starting point of the walks.

Always bring plenty of water.

Always wear running/tennis shoes. Open toed shoes are not a good idea for these stairs walks.

Any questions or concerns please email me, David.

    I'd like to give my space to someone else. I am just getting over a bad virus, and don't want to take chances. Thank you, and see you next time!

    are dogs welcome?

    February 21, 2013

    • David

      Yes, dogs are welcomed on the walk. Doubtful that dogs are allowed at Silver Lake Wines or Red Lion Tavern.
