Episode 3: La Dolce Vita

Vintage Los Angeles sent Aj Benza out on a special assignment to visit one of the greatest vintage Rat Pack style restaurants in the city called La Dolce Vita!! I can’t imagine anyone better than our former host from “Mysteries & Scandals” to bring back the latest on one of Frank Sinatra’s favorite spots! It’s been beautifully cared for and restored by owner Allesandro Uzieli.

Episode 2: A Cast of Caricatures

In our latest VLA-TV episode, we take you inside the Palm Restaurant’s West Hollywood location before their move to Beverly Hills. I’m sure many of you have been wondering what happened to all those legendary caricatures on the walls. Well, VLA was there to capture all the excitement with Angie Dickinson, Mamie Van Doren, Shecky Greene and many other dedicated customers!! We also reveal the back story of The Palm with owners, Bruce Bozzi, and Wally Ganzi! This is one of the most unique preservation stories in L.A. history!

Episode 1: Tail O’ The Pup

VLA’s web series premieres with a feature on the beloved Los Angeles roadside eatery “Tail O’ The Pup” which mysteriously disappeared from the streets of West Hollywood nearly a decade ago. Its whereabouts have been in question ever since. Vintage Los Angeles uncovers the original hotdog facade that was built in the 1940s and interviews its long-time owners The Blake Family in this exclusive mini-documentary, highlighting the colorful history and future of this lost Angeleno treasure.

Craziest question ever. Does anybody have a stuffed Rocky and Bullwinkle I can borrow for tonight’s city Council meeting?

I wish the Dudley Do Right Emporium was still open!

Or even some Bullwinkle Antler ears?

Back in 1976 I met Jane foray on Newport Beach walking at sunrise along the surf. She smiled my way and we met and she did her rocky the squirel to me and I laughed and told her what a great job ! Then she did a Natasha and I looked at this very pretty lady in a white gauze dress and had to ask her what she did for a living. She told me her career in hollywood was voice overs. Wow what that bullwinkle image did to light up the memory for me!

No, but I have a few Quisp items that unfortunately won't help your present day cause. Good luck!

I heard the statue was being reinstalled on Sunset-great news!

Sadly "No" 🙁 But I wish had the box set of "Rocky & Bullwinkle" show DVD 🙂

My favourite post today on all of social media.

"... No doubt about it, I need a bigger hat! "

Sorry - stuffed Bullwinkle lives here on the East Coast.

I didn’t know that they made a doll of him!

Back about 1972, the Dudley Do Right Emporium had a contest, winner would receive their weight in jelly beans or rot gut liquor.

I do! But I am in Oregon and they are in a cargo trailer in Arizona.

Too bad you can't get this one...

Call, they are likely open.

Universal city walk or maybe Warner Bros back lot gifts?

No but if I did I would loan it to for sure. ❤️

Oh, sure, “for tonight’s City Council meeting” - You just want to have Rocky & Bullwinkle in your home for a few days! I see what’s going on here. . .

I have the redone ones from Dreamworks. I wanted June Foray to sign Rocky for me and she said she would but the next Animation party I brought it with a sharpie but she wasn’t there. Sadly she passed shortly after! What a wonderful lady she was!

The Dudley Do-Right Emporium. Hallowed ground at the center of the universe.

I have a stuffed Rocky but I’m on the east coast!

I looked over the agenda for the meeting tonight. It looks as if WEHO is in favor of the Holloway triangle site for the installation.

David Pruiksma Do you think you can help out my dear friend Alison? I will treat you to a martini 🍸

I have a stuffed Beanie and Cecil (and they talk), but alas no Rocky or Bullwinkle.
