Bet you, like me, have driven by the Big Barrel building on Vineland in North Hollywood for years. The Idle Hour Cafe, as the barrel was once called, is a major San Fernando Valley treasure, and an architectural landmark in Southern California. Thank goodness the Los Angeles Conservancy has taken a strong interest in the preservation, and possibly, restoration of the historic structure.
Your Museum Community , though stretched thin in our efforts to secure office and exhibition spaces, fully recognizes the importance of the immediate need for conservation of buildings like the Idle Hour Cafe. Sooooooooo, here's a call for volunteers to support the efforts of The Museum's newly forming Idle Hour Cafe Committee.
Interested? Call your Museum today. 1 (818) 347-9665. If you leave a message, tell us or spell for us, your name and leave your telephone number.
Looking forward to seeing you on tomorrow;s historic walking tour of the NoHo. We meet at 10 am at the Amelia Earhart statue in North Hollywood park - Magnolia and Tujunga.
