Eat Here! Red Lion Tavern

My recent adventures in the Silver Lake and Angelino Heights area of Los Angeles (part 1, part 2, part 3, part 4) started when my son invited me to lunch at the Red Lion Tavern. Red Lion Tavern (5)I hadn’t been there in ages, but was pleased everything looked the same, and the food tasted as delicious as I remembered. The Kassler Rippchen is still beyond compare (photo below).Red Lion Tavern

Years ago, I worked nearby and often visited with co-workers at lunchtime, sharing the fabulous cold cut platter. In later years, I went with family in the evenings for dinner. One distinct memory is when my son, Andreas, was about 3 years old. A group of us were seated near the entertainer who sang and played accordion. Andreas had been asleep, but woke up with a start when he heard the music. The entertainer spontaneously handed the microphone to Andreas who then stood right up and started singing Somewhere Over the Rainbow. Talk about random! I’ll never forget how shocked we all were… he’d been sound asleep not two seconds before, and how he came up with that song I’ll never know! It was adorable, and a wonderful memory that was recalled often over the years. ~SueBee (photos by SueBee)

    If I suddenly woke up and started to sing, it would clear the joint in seconds.

      Same goes for me I’m afraid, and any nearby dogs would start howling. ~SueBee
