...not quite porn and not quite cake, it's bigger,older and nastier and it's baked fresh daily....
Do you remember when there was a Roscoe's in Hollywood, I think it was either on Cahuenga, or Gower, near Sunset. I ate there often. I love your blog.
Roscoe's is still there, it's on Gower just before Sunset on the East side of the street. I live one block North!
Thanks for that update. I once lived at Wilcox and Fountain, early 80's, I ate at a lot of local places then. My fave was Johnny's on Hollywood Blvd. Kinda coffee shop and part restaurant. Good place for a quick lunch and then a movie matinee. It's gone now.
Hey Mike, if you read this, there's a reasonable/cheap place to eat recently opened just east of Vine on the North side of Sunset called Waffle. Or The Waffle. Right across the street from Fabiolus cafe. I don't remember Johnny's -I was still in my hometown (London) in the 1980s then in 1988 met my future husband who is from Hawaii. Moved there in '88, then Los Angeles in 1995. I read your profile and see you are a 23-year-strong couple ... congrats. My hubby and I are 22 years next month. Do you have a facebook page? Would enjoy talking w/ you sometime. Or if you don't want to leave a f/book name, I can provide an email. Only if you feel like it. Only interested in desultory chat; I'm always delighted to find anyone who lists Chinatown and Auntie Mame as fave movies. In fact we're off to see the new Polanski at the arclight later today.
