  1. Superb details about David Goodis 100th Birthday Party. Keep sharing such interesting stuff here. Anyways, we have also been making plans for celebrating out grandmother’s 80th birthday in vintage style and would like to book a good LA venue for that. Hoping to find a nice location soon in the budget.
