in other bad/sad news

one of (if not The) last remaining All American Burgers

is being turned into a Chipotle

(the sign says “Burritofication in Progress”.

although i like Chipotle and it will be nice to have one closer to me than the Grove, i liked All American Burger.

yes their burgers werent good (i preferred the Pastrami sandwiches)

but they harkened back memories of Fast Times at Ridgemont High

memories that are quickly fading now that the Sherman Oaks Galleria is gone

and many of the landmarks and stars seem to be going the way of the dingo.
