    Yo Evan/Sharon,

    Clifton’s…alas, I don’t think I ever made it there, but Y’all might enjoy pics http://tinyurl.com/y9q45cmp (click pics to enlarge.) As pics are added overtime, a reader may have to do a Google Image search using, e.g. Clifton’s downtown. Oh! Oh! just for you Evan http://tinyurl.com/y9o2oebj

    Windjammer…Alas I was hoping that might be the name of a place on Hollywood Riviera’s Catalina Ave that had a Polynesian ambiance like Trader Vic’s/Don the BeachCombers. As I noted in the past, it was in a business area where Kurt’s Scandinavian home decor was. Alas it ain’t, as evidenced by this pic http://tinyurl.com/yc2ju9r4
    Regards….

    I also wanted to thank Sharon Beahm for her post on January 3rd regarding Clifton’s Cafeteria. I LOVED that place, though I couldn’t tell you what I ate there as a kid. I only remember Clifton’s “treasure chest” full of brightly colored toys and games, free stuff for kids, there for doing nothing more than “finishing all of our food.” Clifton’s was awesome, but I also loved going with my parents to The Parasol in Torrence, and The Windjammer in Redondo. My Dad always ordered the “double Spencer steak” at the Windjammer, while my Mom preferred the elegant Sundaes at the Parasol. And sometimes, as an extra bonus, dinner at The Windjammer would be followed up by a double feature at the Torrence Drive-In. Darn I wish all of these places were still up and operating!!!!
