I just blogged the pictures I shot at Encounter and, for text, used parts of an interview with Eddie Sotto at laughingplace.com by permission. Here's my effort: http://www.thelope.com/2006/04/future-was-so-cool-in-1961.html

I just found out today Encounter at LAX is now open. They were closed to repair the piece that fell off one of the legs.

Such is great news!
I do not think there is a better example of Modern architecture in LA.

Has anyone tried the mai tai here?
Ultimate Mai Tai gives it a perfect rating.

I stopped in at the Encounter 11 days ago, and ordered a mai-tai. The bartender made the drink in front of me, and I asked her to stop when she started pouring grenandine in the drink. She did include Meyers Dark rum though - perhaps more than usual to make up for the grenadine. It was nothing like the drinks I had at the Tiki Ti the days before, but better than the average mainstream bar attempt at a mai-tai.
Although the Encounter is open, the building is currently surrounded by scaffolding - it reminds me of a mixture of space-age architecture and mad mathematical fractals.
