Behold, Thrillist’s Metro Drinking Map, which has been making the rounds on Twitter over the last few weeks. It seems pretty intuitive—drink your way through Los Angeles, unfettered by automobiles—but here are the official rules™: One bar per station, 10 minute walk max to bar (give or take), and the goal is that the bar is somewhat representative of the neighborhood. Some are *really* hard—who would have guessed LA has bar deserts?
But what’s especially awesome is that this map is being shared as a work-in-progress. Hate a stop’s choice? Have a pick for one of the blank stations? Tweet at @jeshizaemon and he will take your suggestions. Looks like they especially need ideas for the Green and Blue lines.
Here are a few of my recommendations to get you started. Add yours in the comments and I’ll put them in list form. My only question: When is the bar crawl?

La Cienega/Jefferson: Mandrake
Expo/La Brea: Club Fais Do-Do
