    Well - your wish definitely came true. In January, we did almost everything on Soda's list and then some!

    And NNTFT - so glad you were able to use Soda's post as your tour guide and, more importantly, glad you enjoyed yourself.

    A bit tangential, but this came up in my Google alerts - apparently, there's some issues with Lucy's El Adobe Cafe:

    Brown, Ronstadt Favorite Restaurant Target of Bitter Sibling Battle

    It's a bit grim to read about their legal issues, but it does mention that Glenn and Don ate there and has a factoid I had not heard before: apparently, Brown and Ronstadt met there!

    I must admit that I was unimpressed with the place's food. I guess I'm just used to TexMex. I except my chicken and rice to be boneless chicken with seasoned rice and queso, not white rice with brown gravy and bones.

    Thanks for posting that, soda - such a shame that this has caused a rift between Lucy's surviving children. Didn't someone once say that money is the root of all evil?

    Thanks for the link, Soda, it’s unfortunate that it has come to this. It’s cool you got to eat there even if the food wasn’t all that great.

    Yep - it was in the Bible first!

    Regarding Lucy's, despite the food, it is worth a visit for Eagles fans due to the pictures on the walls. I get the impression the guys probably mostly went there for the margaritas anyway!

    The autograph wall at Lucy’s is well worth a visit. It has nearly everyone who was anyone in California rock and country in the 70s and 80s. The 1998 photo of all seven Eagles is the prize. There’s also a very rare photo of Jimi Hendrix with Arthur Lee of Love that I’ve never seen anywhere else.

    Too bad to hear they are having trouble. I loved going there with Dreamer. It was a very pretty place. We were there on a rather quiet evening and had drinks. I could have spent more time looking at all the pictures, but found what I needed, those of Glenn and Don.

    It seems any will or trust can be contested these days, so really, a will doesn't mean a whole lot.

    I definitely enjoyed my visits there - it is a fun place to visit for any Eagles fan that visits L.A. I agree with Soda about the food though ... it was bad! So, if you do visit, you may want to just go for drinks like Brooke and I did. I have to believe the food must have been better back in the day.

    We can still go to Dan Tana’s; here’s an interview with the man who’s been tending the bar there since 1968. Guess who his favorite customers were? https://munchies.vice.com/en_us/arti...AIf7bXEjzaF5Uc
