ARCHITECT ELDON DAVIS: 1917 – 2011: HE DESIGNED OUR FAVORITE PLACES


Los Angeles celebrates the Googie style in coffee shops, and Eldon Davis, an architect who gave us many space age mid-century designs, has died at the age of 94. Architects Davis and Louis Armet opened a local firm in 1947 and pioneered in creating numerous delightful buildings that appeared to defy gravity – many of which have been destroyed. Davis is credited with popularizing what became known as coffee shop modern, and he felt free to take it to extremes because California was “open to new ideas.” Our favorite – Pann’s coffee shop built in 1958 in Inglewood, is a prime example of his work and has been lovingly preserved. You’ve seen it in countless movies. And the food is really good too.

    |

    BLIND_ITEM_NEW_#CUT

    One of America’s Sweethearts is battling a serious drug addiction- not hers, but her best friend’s. Through the years these two have been stuck to one another like white on rice and her fame rubbed off on her pal. They’ve been roomies, have worked together on set, and even launched a business venture together. But all that success has come with a price. After years of being sober, the less famous friend has fallen HARD off the wagon and our gal doesn’t know what to do. She’s hosted an intervention, hired an addiction specialist, and even threatened to end the friendship, but nothing seems to work. What’s a girl to do?
