For A Boozing, Stars & Their Locals -
Pete Stahl (taken from Kerrang!)
I live in North Hollywood. It's
called the valley here in LA and there are tons
of great dives and small bars that I like to
frequent, which are away from the whole Hollywood
scene. If I have to pick one local it would be
'The Money Tree'.
Where is it?:
What's so great about
Well, it's got an old school
clientele, it's dark and tacky and you can smoke
there. They have bad 70's style jazz quartets and
old soul pick-up bands and Bobby Darin on the
jukebox. My sister's boyfriend also bartends
there. Free drinks, what more can I say?
Name your poison?:
New Year's Resolution #4: switching
back to jack and coke, a real tooth rotter.
Are you a dry-roasted or
salted kinda guy?:
How often do you get 'em
We have very large nuts here in the
USA so it's easy to get 'em in.
What's your best night at
'The Money Tree' ever?:
We were having a going away party
after this millenium bash we had in the desert,
and my friends in the dutch band 'Beaver' got up
there and played on this jazz band's set-up. It
was awesome! Full of friends and family, just
what you'd expect at your favourite local.
