I'll try to make it, any idea if my daughters are allowed in?  Is it strictly a bar or is it a restaurant too?

Yes, children are allowed. Lexi has gone there a few times, we like their pizza and garlic noodles :)

With the WC room rates, I got the JW marriot,for the around the same price as a hotel in china town I was looking at yesterday!  So pending the schedule for Fri night, we should be able to make it ;)

$40/day parking though, UGGGH!

I know, ridiculous isn't it. During SDCC the parking rates aren't that high. but then again, we are talking LA.

In the other thread, it was noted that there will be sporting events at the Staples Center that night. Plus with Con and it being a weekend night, I'm nervous we won't get seated.

I looked at the location and they will create a 'private party' for us if we can get 30 people together. The private party is $25 per person and includes a starter (soup or salad), entree and a non-alcoholic beverage. Are people interested in doing this? If so, can we get enough people together to do it?

If not, Dolphina, can you suggest another place that would take reservations for our group. I'm nervous about being a 'walkup', given the circumstances .

I am interested & would be happy with prepaying the $25 if necessary. 

I think we need firm commitments from folks!

I don't think the $25 needs to be prepaid. I was looking at their website and it listed the option for separate checks. But we'd need to confirm at least 30 people, because if we had no-shows, I'm sure they would charge us anyway, KWIM?
