Paramount Ranch Map with RPFS Locations!

I posted a photo album from my recent visit to the Paramount Ranch on facebook and added a map with locations from the Renaissance Pleasure Faire in the 1980’s. A couple requests were made for a higher resolution pic, so here it is. I labeled it from memory and “best guess”, and the labels on the map are in the general vicinity unless there was an actual landmark.

Sushi and Sake! Dinner at Yoshi’s in San Francisco!

Sushi and Sake! Dinner at Yoshi’s in San Francisco!

Saturday, 21 June 2014 – 6:00pm

Dinner at Yoshi's in S.F. (copyright 2014 JoshWillTravel)

Dinner at Yoshi’s in S.F. (copyright 2014 JoshWillTravel)

As part of the weekend road trip to San Francisco and the St. Paul’s Reunion, Pub Crawl and Brunch it was decided by Doug that we would have an early dinner in the Omakase Room at Yoshi’s in San Francisco. Our reservation was for six o’clock, so we taxied from the hotel to the restaurant and met our friends there.

The Bar at Yoshi’s in S.F. (copyright 2014 JoshWillTravel)

Our party of 14 was seated right away in a rectangular glass dining room with a long wood table within the larger dining room. It wasn’t private, but it was separated from the rest of the tables and other guests. The dining room is very large and the ceilings are super high. It’s very stylish, with black lacquered furniture and Japanese flourishes, and decorated with large and funky “paper lantern” light fixtures.

And there’s live jazz performed during the dinner service. They also have a jazz club adjacent to the restaurant and bar, and if you have dinner you get preferred seating with your admission ticket for the show. Bobby Caldwell was playing the night we were there and the restaurant was full when we arrived. I took these interior pics after the early dinner crowd had gone into the club.

There’s an Open Kitchen behind glass off the dining room.

We ordered a fancy yuzu cold sake and edamame for the table, and then some appetizers: crab cocktail with avocado mousse, crispy brussel sprouts, and shishito peppers.

Everyone ordered their own dinner and then we shared. The management sent us a complimentary Red Dragon Roll, which was nice. The food presentation was beautiful! We ordered a bunch of different rolls, sushi and sashimi, and a few people had the dinner entrees : Steak Diane, Scallops, Flank Steak and Pork Loin.

Dinner at Yoshi’s in S.F. – Spider Roll (copyright 2014 JoshWillTravel)

I enjoyed the appetizers. The crab cocktail was a WINNER! I ordered the 49er roll: salmon, crab and avocado; and an order of Hamachi (yellowtail) sushi. I also sampled the spider roll, red dragon roll, the three kingdom roll, and the butterfish roll. I love sushi! Everything I ate was super fresh and yummy. Knowing that we had some drinking to do, I didn’t want to stuff myself too much, so we exercised some restraint.

A good time was had by all. The food was good. The service was good, but not great. Since I didn’t make the reservation or choose the restaurant, I was just along for the ride. If you have a party of 14 and a “private room” the service should really be GREAT! 

8:15pm Our limousine arrived at 8:00pm and was waiting for us outside the restaurant.

Your Limosine is waiting.

I’m told they have a great “Happy Hour” menu in the bar from 5-7pm daily.

UPDATE March 21, 2015: In October 2014, Yoshi’s changed names to The Addition. In January 2105, The Addition closed. Yoshi’s in Oakland remains open.

The Historic Barrel Cafe on Vineland in North Hollywood is being restored!

The historic Barrel Cafe (Idle Hour Cafe, Rudy’s Keg, La Cana Restaurant) on Vineland in North Hollywood is being restored and protected! I was driving up Vineland the other day and saw that they were finally restoring the old La Cana Restaurant, so I took this picture. I posted the pic in a group on facebook, and a Blog just happened. The building has a great history and it’s being preserved!

Built in 1941 and closed since 1984, Bigfoot Lodge owner Bobby Green and his 1933 Group picked up the building at auction and a full restoration is underway. It reopens sometime next year as the Idle Hour Cafe.

The Idle Hour Cafe 1940’s

UPDATE! 17 January 2015 – The restoration is almost complete and it looks amazing! The woodwork is beautiful both inside and out! The gate was open and the guys were inside working on a Saturday afternoon. I asked if I could take a few pictures of the interior but they told me there was a “Gag Order” and they weren’t in charge of the decision. I’ll just say it was very impressive. The Bar, the interior space and the dining area…everything is beautiful wood. Opening in February as the new Idle Hour Cafe, or so I was told….. (and there’s a liquor license permit notice posted on the wall)

Completely rehabilitated by 1933 Group, the famous barrel bar, abandoned for years in North Hollywood, has returned. Built 75 years ago, the design was meant to draw in drivers. 1933 Group worked on this project for over 3 years before opening The Idle Hour in 2015.

The restored wood glistens with golden hues. Patrons can have a cocktail or eat inside the barrel or on the patio where the centerpiece is the rescued Bulldog Cafe which served ice cream and tamales 1928-1960 at 1153 W. Washington Boulevard in Los Angeles.

Found in my storage during the move this week. Don’t know where he came from, or what happened to his red shirt, but he’s in great condition! The tag is shredded so I don’t know who the maker is or how old it is, except that it’s been there for at least 20 years.

Vintage Disney Storage Find #2A – Vacationland Summer 1977 Magazine (part 1)

NOTE: I spent last few days moving my storage and having some fun, so it’s been a little hectic here. There a few other blogs in varying stages of development, just haven’t had time to finish, polish and post…apologies to my loyal readers. I am proud to point out that at least one blog was posted each day the week before, so go back and check out the archive! There’s some pretty fun stuff and I’d like some feedback if you’re out there! Thanks!

Vintage Disneyland! Vacationland Summer '77 magazine - COVER

Vintage Disney! Disneyland Vacationland Summer 1977 magazine – FRONT COVER

I actually found this vintage piece before I found the “Sleeping Beauty” poster (see previous blog) and have been posting individual pages on my facebook page http://www.facebook.com/joshwilltravel and sharing them with the Vintage Disneyland group.

The magazine was in MINT CONDITION and I was hesitant to even scan it for fear of damage. It was just too cool not to share! I’m working on a long blog and the contents include the articles on the Main Street Electrical Parade, the Golden Horseshoe Revue, “The Rescuers” and Disneyland Costume Division. There are also vintage promotions for the Gerber Baby Center and Orville Reddenbacher Popcorn (both new additions in 1977) and cool retro ads for Disneyland, Wonder Bread/Hostess, GAF/Kodak and even other theme parks: Knotts, Magic Mountain, Lion Country Safari and Universal Studios.

Okay, this was just a BIG TEASE because I don’t have time to post the whole blog…it’s under construction…and I spent some time on World Cup USA ’94 (coming soon) tonight.

Vintage Disney Storage Find #1: Walt Disney’s “Sleeping Beauty” 1970 Rerelease Movie Poster

It measures 3-1/2′ x 2-1/4′ (there’s a little damage at the bottom, a small torn corner, and it’s still partially wrapped in the original cellophane). Must be a sign that it’s time to finally have it framed!

Spring is a time of cleaning! I’ve been trying to get organized for about twenty five years. I’m definitely a “pack rat” in that I don’t like to throw stuff out, and I believe you never know what item might be important or valuable later. Not just in terms of having a monetary value, but in terms of the emotional connection an item has, or the dormant memory that an item triggers.

I don’t think I’m a hoarder, but it probably depends on someone else’s opinion. To manage my “STUFF” and to keep my day-to-day life relatively clutter free, I’ve maintained a storage space for years and years.

Storage! Three Past Lives in 300 Square Feet of  Rented Space

Storage! Three Past Lives Stored in Boxes in 300 Square Feet of Rented Space

I have three past lives stored away in boxes in about 300 square feet of rented space:

1. Things from before the Northridge earthquake of 1994, when I had everything stored in Northridge, and the facility was yellow tagged. I moved everything that was salvageable to North Hollywood. This stuff includes keepsakes from childhood through college, retro furniture, hand-me-down kitchen appliances, film/prop/set/art/lighting/costume supplies from my first years in Hollywood production and camping equipment/building material from the Renaissance Faire.

2. Things from my life after college in Los Angeles, including furniture, bar and glassware, kitchen and cookware, housewares, appliances, electronics, books, vinyl records, VHS tapes, cassette tapes, and assorted memorabilia and papers from my post-college, Hollywood production and management years, and a past married life long ago.

3. Things from this current life that are taking up space or need to be stored away out of sight. STUFF! There are real estate files, old talent management files, financial records and receipts, office supplies, file cabinets and office furniture, toys & games, collectibles, magazines, clothes and linen, old computer software and hardware, miscellaneous junk, and empty boxes waiting to be filled with more stuff.

Periodically, I will sell some of my stuff, but the collection always continues to grow! So, after 20 years at the facility in North Hollywood, because of circumstances beyond my control, I’m moving everything. I’ll be trashing some stuff, selling some stuff, and moving some stuff to other places.

Which brings us back to the “Sleeping Beauty” Movie Poster I found today between a large unframed mirror and a glass tabletop. I recently joined the Vintage Disneyland group on facebook and I’ve already found a couple of cool vintage pieces.

I’ll be posting stuff for sale soon. Check back here and on my facebook. And please let me know if you’re interested in buying anything that I’m selling! Thanks!

“That’s all you need in life, a little place for your stuff. That’s all your house is: a place to keep your stuff. If you didn’t have so much stuff, you wouldn’t need a house. You could just walk around all the time. A house is just a pile of stuff with a cover on it. You can see that when you’re taking off in an airplane. You look down, you see everybody’s got a little pile of stuff. All the little piles of stuff. And when you leave your house, you gotta lock it up. Wouldn’t want somebody to come by and take some of your stuff. They always take the good stuff. They never bother with that crap you’re saving. All they want is the shiny stuff. That’s what your house is, a place to keep your stuff while you go out and get…more stuff! Sometimes you gotta move, gotta get a bigger house. Why? No room for your stuff anymore.” and “Nobody owns anything. When you die, it all stays here.” ~ George Carlin
