There’s someone you should meet, and he goes by the name of Eric. Yes, that Eric—freelance lawyer, Silver Lake inhabitant and rightful chairman of the board of materials and applications. There are a few things you might want to know about Eric, starting with his breakfast. After rolling out of bed, he gets his morning bite at Local on Sunset. If you try to tell him why the Westside is awesome, you will lose every time. (Let’s just say this former west Beverly Hills resident is former for a reason). So what are his favorite bars, you ask? Hyperion Tavern and Thirsty Cow. Just don’t expect this Sherman Oaks-born opinion holder to join you on your smoke break.
