I'll be in Burbank Wednesday and have maybe four plus hours to kill before the Ellen show.
Where to go, oh, where to go?
Oceanic Arts is 29 miles away. That could mean 45 minutes away, almost half the time available.
Do I only go to Oceanic or try to hit other places?
Security will have a breathalizer, so heavy drinking is out.
Where are the close by places without having to use half the time driving to one place?
Mahalo!!

The Original Bob's Big Boy is located in Burbank at 4211 Riverside Drive:

Travel/Yahoo:

The flagship of the once-mighty chain looks and feels as good as ever. Recently designated as a State Point of Historical Interest, you can actually get real car-hop service on the weekends. Friday night brings loads of car enthusiasts showing off their hotrods. The food is standard fare, but the feel is strictly Fonzie. Prices are, as expected, very moderate. It is the atmosphere (and the memories) that everyone values here.

Go to the Tonga Hut in North Hollywood and do all your drinking when you first arrive.

This is my first post so I'm really excited!! We took WooHoo Wahine's advice and went to Bob's Big Boy. I was a fantastic blast from the past. Mr. NoNaMe reported that there was a bumb taking his bath in the men's room restroom!! Quite a cultural phenomenon!!

We did not make it to the general audience of the Ellen Degeneres talk show, but ended up in the Riff Raff Room. The staff were very gracious and offered us a guarenteed invite for May in the general (broadcast) audience. We will keep you posted. We also discovered that Ellen's studio is in the same lot as Access Hollywood and the Tonight Show with Jay Leno. Possibilities, possibilities.

We wanted to go to Oceanic Arts, but we didn't have time from receiving the tickets to air time. On the next visit we will make this a reality! We will also take into consideration all your wonderful advice and take you up on the various bars that the ohana have recommended. We'll let you know how it goes on our next adventure into the HollyWood scene. Thank you for all your support and we look forward to hearing from you in the future. The Head Shrinker aka Mrs. NoNaMe. Here are photos of the ham himself, NoNaMe.

Round two.

Head Shrinker and I will be at Oceanic at 11am tomorrow. We bail around their lunch (and ours) and head to doggy day camp up Pasadena way to drop the dogs.
Burbank by 2:30. Leave Burbank around 5:30 and head to Bahooka. After dinner pick the kids up five miles away at doggy day care and head home.
