Good stuff! I was hoping to see a bit of John Launtner's work but it brought back some memories when I flew out to see a buddy and watch a 2016 NLCS game of Cubs vs Dodgers...I channeled Bukowski at the Frolic Room after the game that night and was able to get escorted out before closing. (I think I was running my mouth off how Kershaw was gonna choke) made the flight back to Chicago where the Cubs clinched and the rest is history!

^ thanks -- i think the launtner houses and some others have crazy fees and restricted tour times, but i would like to try to at least get good looks at them sometime.

btw -- the neutra vdl house is reasonable and open for tours on saturdays, but i missed it.

next visit!
