    Yo John H…Thank you!….I can always count on you…one way or another…to confirm postings are read…LOL I’ve chided Mark to add, at his convenience, to his “About This Site”‘s intro, a request that if a Reader asks a question that they make a point to revisit the site to see if someone attempted to answer their query and to acknowledge that in some way. Alas, in reading his “About This Site”, one can see he has his own problems in getting Folks to best use the site…LOL  God/gawd bless him for his “patience” as well as sharing his time/talent in maintaining the site.
    Alas: I’m thinking that many who come upon/read the site are a bit “seasoned”. As such, many of “them” just probably “forget” to check back to see if anyone’s tried to answer their query…LOL
    Elsewise, Best Wishes for the New Year!

    Elizabeth (Allen) Sheiman: In 1979 my best friend and I took a Trailways Bus from Pittsburgh to L.A. We stayed at Sterns Motel on Washington Blvd. We walked over to Gooey Louies every evening for dinner. Loved the Gooey and Vegas Burgers!

    Bob of the Village of Los Ranchos (NM) – That is exactly The Nine Muses of which we write, thank you. BUT I would have been more impressed had you found the actual posts. :>)

    Does anyone remember the name of a restaurant in Brentwood and also in Santa Monica that served healthy food not vegetarian but healthy in the 80’s and earlier?

    John/Maureen: Don’t know if this is relevant; have no other info.

    Maureen Jones – The Nine Muses has been discussed on Old Restaurants, but not on its own thread. I am one of those posters, but that was quite aways back, and you’d have to do a lot of scrolling.

    Muses was an upscale restaurant at popular prices. It was a place to impress a date without going broke. They played soft classical music and the menu was done in fancy italics (that got me into trouble one time). The chef’s creations were often very imaginative, the food, very good.

  • Jeff Holtzman says:

    Ah yes…The Fox Inn. Bill would drink a beer standing on his head and of course embarrass anyone who was going to the sand box during his “performance”.

  • Maureen Jones says:

    I went to a restaurant in Los Angeles called The Nine Muses. That was in1964. Anyone remember it?

  • Donette says:

  • Pete Puma says:

    Technically I suppose it wasn’t a restaurant, but does anyone remember The Fox Inn Beer Garden & Rathskeller in Santa Monica? I spent many an evening there singing along to Bill “The Fox” Foster’s bawdy tunes.
