- My name is Eli. Growing up as a kid, all I wanted to do was stay up all night. I wanted to play video games, I wanted to eat, I wanted to drink. Now I'm a full grown adult, I have a credit card and an ID. And I'm just gonna stay up all night and get drunk. We meet people, find out what to do when the bars close, and if I can make it to sunrise then I'll know it was a good night. So we're in LA. Chinatown. This is a fucking trip. This is the city of dreams. This is Tinseltown. But we're not gonna see the tinsel part of it. This is the beginning of the night. Welcome to Los Angeles motherfuckers. I wanna stay up all night. - [Bartender] Okay? - Like that's my goal. I need to figure out the balance. Like how do you get through your night? - First of all, a cocktail I think is like a nice in between. Like having a shot - [Eli] Correct. - and a beer. - [Eli] Okay. - [Bartender] I'm gonna make you a ginger cocktail. - [Eli] Do it. - Super simple. Gin, ginger, ginger syrup that we make here, and lime. That's it. - That's so good. - I need to give you some piece of advice. All of us hate hangovers, especially myself, and anybody around me who has to wake up next to me. - Yup. Hangover recipe. - But this Coca Cola. - Wait, it has to be the Mexican Coke bottle? - [Bartender] I'm not sure. - I feel like we're unlocking Pandora's box with the - All I know is that you drink this before bed and you're solid. - But like if we're trying to diagnose it, is it the one coke - [Bartender] I'm not - or is it just sugar? - [Bartender] gonna no, no. - Like if I just down a bunch - [Bartender] And it loses - of sour patch kids? - And it loses all of it's like - Allure? What's your policy on drinking here, why don't you take a shot? There's no rules at all. You have been the best, thank you. -Eli. - I don't know what that means. - [Bartender] Go have fun! - Metro pass. You get the all night pass, that's what I'm doing. I didn't even know LA had a subway. But now I'm on it. Uh oh. At Hollywood Boulevard. This is good, how much is the rose? Can I get two? Yeah, please. Now this feels legit now. So what are you guys doing out tonight? - A lot events to uh. - Oh my god! Who the fuck is this guy? - [Eli] It's real ain't it? Bye, nice meeting you. - [Voiceover] You too. - Two, three. - Thanks man, have a good night. I'm starting to feel a little bit of the crazy and I think that's just part of the it's part of the charm. Maybe we're fucked up, maybe we're crazy. I don't know. This is tough man. There's a lot of emotions with Bill Cosby. You were a hero of mine man. You ate pudding like a boss, and I feel a little gross. Sorry Bill. Commercialism at it's finest. You have like lame ass souvenir stores. And now I'm starting to remember how long it's been since my last drink. This is a dream come true to have a street cocktail with Jack Sparrow. Key ingredient gin. - I usually drink rum but, show all this gin business. - I'm gonna get a little lime spritz. - All we need is some squirts you know? That's what she said. - Ah. - [Jack Sparrow] You know if you're trying to get your music career going, and your acting career, and everything else, you need to be here in LA, so. - [Eli] Yeah. - Here I am. - There you are. You're oozing with a love for LA. But why, can you boil it down? - It's an amazing place to be. I would never wanna live anywhere else in the world. This is the entertainment capital of the world. - Yeah. - And it's the only place in the world where you can go and sit on a beach and have your feet in the ocean, two hours later you could be up in the snow at Big Bear. - Yeah. - I mean everything that has offer is right here in LA. - Have you ever drank in an alleyway before? - No I've gotta say this is probably a first. - There we go. Uber driver, Chase, he told me that we're going to a taco truck. And they have the best deep-fried chicken neck. We're going to what I presume is the middle of nowhere. - [Chase] Yeah, it's a little bit in the middle of nowhere. - Alright, I don't know where we are, but the Uber driver hooked it up. There's a mariachi band chilling outside. And I feel more adventurous than ever on these chicken necks. - [Voiceover] Here you go. - There it is. This is the chicken neck. That's so good, like if you like chicken skin. See the cartilage just breaks apart. A lot of chicken had to die for this. Sorry to bring that up. This is delicious. Real quick street cocktail. RumChata. First thing you need Horchata. Rum. You remove the cap. Pop bottle of favorite rum. Give it a nice little stir. Are you ready to stay up all night? This place is packed and it's a weeknight. - Yeah. You can seriously like live here forever, and never experience all it has to offer. And that's why people love it. - Fuck. Boom. No, no, no, no. Aw yeah, Wolverine! Die, die. Yo, we're in Thai Town. We're gonna test out this sugar theory. This is apparently some of the best Thai desserts in town. Would I have ever taste something like this? Make a little wrap out of it. That's amazing. - Pangchi, one of our best sellers. - And do you usually go about 30 each of these. You just go 'til you die. Dude it is late as fuck right now. And this place is cracking off, the line's out the door. Downtown LA you were a mystery. Alright, fuck! I feel like I've seen pictures of this part of Chinatown. This is kinda creepy dude. I hear voices. I'm just gonna gravitate towards them. Alright, this is what I'm talking about. Let's get a couple shots. Liquid courage. Place might be shut down, but it's definitely not off. Know what I'm saying? The only place that's open is Won Kok. But the city's like it's somewhat hard to navigate. So like we're here, we're breaking ground here by just being up. I think I wanna try to find a bus to the beach. None of those are Santa Monica, that's where the beach is right? Taking the bus is fucking complicated. I think people sleep at this bus stop. Truly confusing. I took the wrong bus, that was a mistake. I'm starting to fade man the bus is not, it's not easy in LA. LA you are a nasty bitch. - [Voiceover] Approaching Wilshire and Bonsall. - Wilshire and where we at? Where are we? ♫ It's cold outside ♫ Fuck the bus ♫ I'm done with the bus ♫ Seriously fuck the bus. Oh shit. The one thing you can count on in southern California and specifically LA, to be open 24 hours a day is a donut shop. We're at DK's donuts. There's nowhere I would rather be. Just gonna get a coffee real quick. I heard that eating something sweet before you pass out after a long night of drinking is like the way to go. - Well we actually have a giant Texas sized half-croissant half-donut. - I don't know if I'm just delusional, if it's like me being up all night, but that sounded way too good to be true. I've been up all night and now I'm in the back of like the best donut shop in LA. I was born ready for this. Oh yeah. This is the donut I've always wanted to make. Oh yeah. My food boner is on erec right now. Holy cow. - This is the ultimate breakfast half-croissant half-donut hybrid. - Whoo! You're the donut princess? - I'm the donut princess. - That's a tight hashtag. I got my breakfast, but I have one last thing I have to get to the beach before the sun comes up. Let's do this. Let's fuck it, let's go, let's go, let's go. Buses, trains, oh my god, crazy people, I rode a bike. LA is crazy man. Like at first it sucks and then it gets way better, and then you drink with Jack Sparrow, and then you end up on a fucking beach, with a donut the size of your head.
