Nice. I went to the Bahooka domain and see that it's for sale:



Is anyone up for a "domain rescue?"

I miss Bahooka. Haven't thought about it in a while.

I see that a Chinese restaurant called "Moonlight" opened up in the space last July (2015). From the photos on Yelp, the inside looks completely different. You wouldn't know it was the same place. This is in contrast to the outside which, surprisingly, has NOT been altered much. Even the guns are still in the parking lot, although for some reason they've been painted white. Maybe the UN owns them now.

This is perhaps a sore subject, but did anyone ever find out what happened to Rufus? Just a simple "Dead" or "Alive" will suffice.

A buddy of mine SWEARS he saw Rufus and Elvis having a pina colada at Trader Vic's (London.) His fins were perfect.

Nice, the tables are very similar. I bought several of the tables and chains from the Bahooka, but have sold them to another TC member already. The Bahooka chains were bigger and HEAVY! Some were easily over 100 lbs each, no joke. Old chains used in the Navy, I guess.

Bahooka was bought and converted to the Moonlight Bar & Restaurant, then that went under, and now it's the Cinnabar Restaurant & Bar. Below is a pic from Google Maps. I'm still surprised how "Moonlight" had so many glowing 4 and 5-star reviews on Yelp and then still went under. They way people wrote about it you'd a thunk that the place was the only Asian restaurant in all of Los Angeles. Me thinks that someone pumped up the place with glowing reviews and Yelp just can't tell the difference between real and fake. But we'll never know maybe, other than the bad press from the whole Rufus incident, the rest of the place was a good spot.
