Anyone who has ever enjoyed the unique atmosphere of the Dresden Room
will be saddened (as I was) to hear of the passing of Carl Ferraro, the Los Feliz institution's long-time owner.
What can I say about the Dresden, and by extension, Carl (since I believe that bars and restaurants are true reflections of their owner's spirit), that hasn't been said before?
I guess I can just relay the fact that Cami and I had one of our earliest dates there, and that we continue to go back again and again, to see Marty and Elayne
, to show off the place to out-of-towners, and sometimes just to soak up the old Hollywood ambience that still lives within those cork-covered walls.
