Save Taix restaurant?
It’s iconic, a landmark. Innumerable historic events were held there.
I came to L.A. in the ‘30s.
One day, I visited Echo Park to see Harry, a friend who was a pattern cutter in the schmata (garment industry), a high paying job when jobs were scarce.
“Morrie, let’s go to Taix for lunch on me.”
I was impressed with the decor, with its size. At that time, with little money, I didn’t eat in restaurants like Taix.
I remember eating their lunch special. A gut-busting full meal for 35 cents.
When I found a job in the movie industry operating klieg lights that paid the union wage of $1.25 an hour (unusually high pay for the times) while living in Echo Park, I ate at Taix often.
I was living the “good life.”
Destroy Taix – hell no!
It would be a travesty.
