  • I went along with witch doctor Malaks insistence that his golden gopher statue was to be worshipped, mostly because my hands were bound, but also because his charts and graphs made a lot of sense.
  • This places liquor license dates back to 1905. Thats before the Ford Model T. Which means you can order drinks to go. To. Go.
  • Congratulations, you've found one of Esquire's Best Bars in America. This place has a liquor license so old, you can stop in for a martini at the bar and pick up a six-pack on your way out.
  • The oldest bar in Los Angeles! Also, one of the only bars that you can purchase beer to go! The Golden Gopher was established before liquor laws even went into place. Time for a pint!
