Merry Christmas And A Googie New Year


Armet Davis Newlove are the architects behind my favorite L.A. buildings. Their coffee shops of the 1950s, including Norms, Pann’s and Astro in Silver Lake, are the epitome of googie style and they all serve late-night pancakes. I love these guys and the world they created. When I was married, the firm sent over a huge framed rendering of their design for El Rodeo Bowl, which continues to brighten my dining room.  You can imagine how much I appreciated their Christmas card this year. With their permission, I’m sharing it with all of you. Merry Christmas.
