And then today, I looked up as the bus approached El Camino and realized that the restaurant where the couple exited the bus last night was not Sam's Hof Brau, famous in Los Angeles as an Adult Caberet, but Sacramento County's Plaza Hof Brau. When did that change? Before Tower folded and emptied most of the shopping center on the northeast corner of Watt and El Camino?
I guess I was the one confused. I have never patronized that Hof Brau, Sam's or Plaza, and can't recall the last time I had German food, although I did have a pretzel in the Munich, Germany, airport while waiting for a plane to Milan, Italy. It was late at night and I was trying to chaperon a soccer team of 10- and 11-year-old boys all dressed in matching warm-ups. The other airport customers were mostly tolerant.
