This Old House

Menlo Cafe, Los Angeles, CA:

I own and maintain a Victorian house in Los Angeles which is soon to celebrate it's 100th birthday. I rent it out to USC grad students who are far too busy to trash the place, so far.

On the weekend of 11 November 95, the tenants of [foo]. threw a little party. Little did they know that as a result of other parties on the street being closed down by the police, their little affair would turn into a major event.

It is estimated that over 500 people showed up. Three kegs were consumed and the bar had to be restocked 4 times. The front yard was flooded with dancers and music. At some point the cops asked them to take the music inside, but the party was not shut down.

They charged $3 at the door and before the evening was over made about $700. (The house did not take a cut. :-)
