      "From 1940 to 1960, this same building housed one of the original
      Brown Derby Restaurants. There were five in all - located in Beverly
      Hills, mid-Wilshire (the hat-shaped one), Hollywood, Los Feliz and the
      Crenshaw district. The Crenshaw location opened and closed in just a
      few months, so it is not as well known as the others.

      The idea for what is now The Derby was originally conceived by Cecil
      B. DeMille and opened in 1929 as Willard's Chicken Inn. The motto
      back then was "The chicken whose feet never hit the ground". Live
      chickens actually were raised in the kitchen! It was the gathering
      place for Hollywood's movie stars; in 1945, while on location filming
      "Mildred Pierce", Joan Crawford muttered the infamous line, "People
      have to drink somewhere. Why not here?" The dome-shaped design of the
      roof actually had a unique purpose: water was pumped up to the top of
      the dome and then ran down the sides into a moat to make this one of
      the first air-conditioned buildings."


      Future bulletins as events warrant, of course.
