I’m guessing that since our winning contestant Chris so cooly and quickly pinpointed the location of last week’s mystery photo subject, other potential entrants just said “pfffft,” and rightly so after reading his response, which was: “It’s the rose fountain at the Disney Concert Hall. It’s inscribed with ‘A Rose for Lilly. Frank Gehry’s Tribute to Lillian Disney. A gift of her grand children and great-grandchildren.’ It also seconds as a fancy urinal after the symphony, but they don’t like that.” Britta then followed up with: “For the fountain, they crushed up real Delft pottery and stuck it on by hand. Or so I read in some article.” So stickers for each ‘o ya, you’re both winners in my book.
Clue: Now that’s a tasty burger! This long-standing and ever-popular eatery pictured above has been situated since 1968 in its corner location in my neck of the woods within that nether region between Sunset Junction and Virgil Village. It was in grave danger of disappearing in 2000 when the property owner suddenly jacked the rent up 150 percent to a reported $5,000 a month (Yikes, that’s a lotta burgers!). Fortunately the then 82-year-old owner (who learned his craft from Tommy Koulax of The Original Tommy’s), found a buyer and on the place lives.
Rules: First one to post a comment most correctly and directly listing the name and location of the photo subject above wins the admiration of the blogging.la readership (or me, whichever’s greater at the time) and a collector’s edition Tush sticker printed with real ink and made with real adhesive. In the event of no one getting it right, the creator of the most entertaining guess will be hailed victorious.
