Keep it in your pants, boys. Get 'em hard and get 'em drinking--seems the Playboy Bunny trend spread into the Valley....


The LAPL's description:

"Shapely models bolster business at Valley Cafe"

"Photograph article dated May 29, 1963 partially reads, 'The biggest luncheon attraction since the advent of blue plate specials is ringing cash registers in Valley restaurants. Unlisted on any menu, the three-letter attraction is credited by one Northridge restaurant operator with doubling his business. 'We started lingerie fashion shows about a year ago after seeing the success they had at the Golden Violin on the Sunset Strip,' says Herb Gross, owner of Jo Jo's restaurant in Northridge. 'Our first shows, with clothes, increased business about 20 per cent--then we took the clothes off and business doubled,' says Gross."

The article has a couple of photos of Little Hungary/Little Gypsy but none of the Golden Violin or The Galaxy.

I found a photo of the Golden Violin...

Is this really how television shows were recorded back in 1962?...I thought the sound technician would be in a sound-proof room. . not on a folding table against the wall !

I can't go without commenting on the young man's festive shirt. Not only does it match the wall and signs, it sparkles! I wonder if the whole crew wore these shirts for the Christmas special...(maybe Dale made them)

You mention the Whisky a Go Go. In the mid 1960s I remember there were "riots" at that place. I was only about 14 at the time, living in the Valley but I remember hearing about the riots on the local news. What were the riots about? Were the Doors rock group performing there at the time? Anybody see the Doors perform? The 1960s were the heyday of the "Sunset Strip", when it was still unincorporated county land. Also, is that the original Hamburger Hamlet? Too bad the chain went away. Very popular before the 1990s.

No trip to Hollywood was complete without a stop at the Hamburger Hamlet on Hollywood Boulevard opposite Grauman's Chinese Theater. Great burgers and the people-watching couldn't be beat!
