Spring training is almost done, but where can you run into players off the field?
We asked Los Angeles Angels players to divulge some of their favorite hangouts.
MASTRO'S CITY HALL STEAKHOUSE
"I love City Hall," says infielder Robb Quinlan, 30. "They have great food and a great atmosphere."
"The food is excellent there," agrees relief pitcher Jason Bulger, 29, a former Diamondbacks player and Scottsdale resident. "It can't be beat."

KONA GRILL AND YARD HOUSE
"There's some really good people-watching by the mall," says Bulger. "You can never be bored in Old Town (Scottsdale). There's something going on every night of the week."
OLIVE & IVY
"It's pretty cool over there," says starting pitcher Nick Adenhart of the Scottsdale Waterfront. "I like Olive & Ivy. The food is good and they have a great atmosphere. It's nice."

Rich Thompson, an Australian import and relief pitcher, calls Salty a fun spot.
"It was a good hangout during an afternoon," says Thompson, 23. "The food was good and there were a lot of people there."
Thompson says he isn't used to the 2 a.m. closing time however.
"It's weird that it's done at 2 a.m.," he says. "I'm used to bars getting started late and staying open really late."
