Another vintage picture of Don's. The chopstick display is to the left.

I got that picture from a 2010 article on chow.com.
I need to look through my "Tiki Modern" again.

This site has more old pics of Don's and other old Hollywood hot spots, but you have to pay in order to use the images. I like the growth progression of the plants in front of Don's from 1937 to 1971.

Why has this 1934 date persisted everywhere? Don opened in 1933, as soon as prohibition ended. Just today I see it again by non-other than Sven!
