    I have a specific, wonderful memory of this Tail O The Cock in Studio City.
    When I was 10 years old, in late 58, my dad worked for State Farm Insurance in Orange County. Part of his job was to visit agents in LA, Hollywood and the SF Valley.
    I had been on a couple sojourns with him earlier. I always got excused from school, all day and this time we ended up in the valley. We stopped at the agent’s office, it was around lunch time. My dad said,”Where’s a good place for lunch?”.
    The agent said “Tail O The Cock, very close by”. This one was rural, nothing close by, except a movie/TV studio. So, we go in and it was dark, red leather upholstery in the booths . We sit down and in walk some actors dressed like cowbows, boots, spurs that jingled. Being all of 10 years old, I was impressed. These guys were TALL and good looking. In those days, this was Western time on TV (Bonanza, Rawhide, Sugarfoot et al .
    They walked in like they owned the place..
    They said “Hi” to us, I couldn’t talk.
    Wish I could remember who they were and the name of the studio next door.
    For a young boy who played cowboy a lot , I was in heaven!
    I can’t remember what we had for lunch, it didn’t matter.
    Cheers, Doug

    On another visit, same era, we went to the Brown Derby (not the hat) with an agent in Hollywood. It was fantastic to see all of the drawings on the wall. I had a “mixed drink”,
    a Roy Rogers, 7-up with cherry juice! I don’t recall seeing any show biz people there, but it was terrific.
    Great site, Martin, I still haven’t made it all the way through.
    Thanks for the memories!
