it was a throwback to all things mid century modern
on the ground floor of best western
at the foot of the hollywood hills
next to the 101 hollywood freeway.
it looked exactly like a place your grandparents ate breakfast at when they were dating
usually packed with hipsters,
i know i ate there at least four or five times but not one memory of the food or the company come to mind.
it was perfectly fine in every way.
i dont even remember there being any issues parking, which is saying something in that part of town.
its shutting down
i wonder if best western thinks how hard is it to make eggs and bacon
sandwiches and whatnot?
i wonder if they think just any old thing would work in there
just because of the legend and momentum
just keep everything looking the same,
lease it out to film productions until everyone has a vaccine
and then find a young chef who knows how to make avocado toast
and call it a day?
put like a mini starbucks in there or something
is that what someones thinking up in corporate?
or worse are they thinking about making it a starbucks
plug and play
bing bam boom
bobs yr uncle
but heres the problem with that
lorde and sally draper arent gonna wanna chill at the starbucks under the best western
which, i hate to say it
was one of the nice things about that place
even the stars loved it there even though theyd probably get seen.
that sort of joint is rare here.
