Excellent. Glad to see this kind of history revived. Hope they’ll be playing some Mr. Mojo Risin as I eat a 1946 dog, chili fries, a root beer, and end with a soft serve.

Rock on brother.

Doors location aside, personally I’m partial to Led Zeppelin tho! (hell, their debauchery a few blocks away at what’s now the Andaz)

@BradFord, I’ve been wanting to check out this spot where Stevie Wonder and David Bowie and others recorded - now you can get a $25 cocktail probably…still i’m intrigued.

No shortage of original restaurants and bars with rock history nearby too…

That’s pretty funny

Haha, yes, I think I’d stick to olives. lemon twists and marischino cherries. The 71 Studio bar which is opened in limited fashion seems pretty cool tho.

Carney’s on the Sunset Strip also makes some of the best dogs in town…

And for more hot dog/rock and roll history, there’s always Oki Dog

Since I’m not a huge hot dog eater, this place might have to slide in ahead of Pink’s for the upcoming visit.

Hi Bob - I’m eager to check it out. I hear good things. Nice local history there too - hell, LA Woman was recorded in what’s now the bathroom! Carney’s on Sunset is a nice option too. LA’s a hotdog and donut town!

Well, I am a donut guy!

Thanks for the fabulous pics! I just finished “Everybody Thought We Were Crazy: Dennis Hopper, Brooke Hayward, and 1960s Los Angeles,” by Mark Rozzo. I am simply enthralled by LA in the 1960s!

Also had no idea that Hopper was such a great photographer or such an astute art collector. He and Brooke were the first owners of Ed Ruscha’s Standard Station, Amarillo, Texas (1963), IMHO one of the greatest works of art of all time.

very cool @BobfromRIinVA

well be sure to go visit the sunset marquis hotel off the strip…not only is there rock history and art everywhere there’s a cool art gallery store there…then you can walk up and see the Whiskey which looks pretty much the same, and troll around that area.

Tasty dogs. Didn’t try this chili this time. Fries McDonald’s plus style. Rings next time. Cool atmosphere and nice folks working there. Good day for soft serve.
