LOL; I remember Dillons. Yesterdays was a regular restaurant/bar. Wow, memories...Westwood was a lot of fun back then. Great bookstores and funky little dress shops. And a movie theater on nearly every block. I wonder whatever happened to Alice's Restaurant.

They both closed. My favorite was the one on Malibu Pier. Also loved Old Worlde especially on Sunset. Their Sunday Brunch waffles were heaven! Also miss Figaro's that was on Little Santa Monica. The best hot fudge sundaes...well, everything is good when your feeling "good".

Didn't anyone ever go to the Rainbow Bar and Grill or the Roxy or Big Daddy's at the Marina? Big hair and big shoulder pads with white bobbie socks and white high heals! What were we thinking, oh yea...Madonna. Let's not forget the sweat shirts with the necks cut off hanging off a shoulder. Pretty sexy huh?! Oh, boy. Fashion was not at it's highest point in the eighties.
