Best Meat Market - 2012
When combining the terms all ages with Orange County, there's only one definitive spot to discuss: Chain Reaction. Here, boys with flat-ironed hair and eyeliner resemble girls and still manage to do well for themselves with the ladies. Here, marginalized teens from a variety of subcultures (from emo to screamo) come to listen to bands with banal names such as As I Gently Lactate and Lions Versus Eohippus and look their best while bobbing their heads to the sweet sounds of youth. In business for more than two decades, Chain Reaction is an institution, man.
