Monday, December 7, 2009 Blue Christmas

Christmas comes to the Saddle Ranch Chop House (formerly the Thunder Roadhouse) 8371 Sunset Boulevard, on the Sunset Strip. Dennis Hopper and Peter Fonda were key investors in the original Thunder Road, using their profits from that "Easy Rider" movie. There was a specialty motorcycle place next door of the same name extreme choppers but that's long gone. But for a time it all fit together.

Now it's just kitsch. Elvis, Blue Christmas whatever.
