(This is really for my friends in LA.)

In a week’s time, I am leaving California and heading back to England and the pleasant Georgian seaside resort of Brighton. The original idea was to have a farewell party at my apartment, but since the chaos of moving has reduced it to a Hollywood House of Usher, we are decanting the celebration to Chavito (the bar on the other side of El Chavo restaurant) at 4441 W. Sunset Blvd., Silver Lake. (323 664 0871) That's just east of the Vista Theater on Sunset, on the north side of the street. And there’s free parking in the back, you enter on Sunset Drive.

All this is happening this Saturday (Oct 23rd). And we’ll be kicking off at 5.00 to avail ourselves of the happy hour.

More like his Abbie Hoffman period.

I hope the return home is a good one. Even after all the years I could never visualize you as a Californian. Take care. Cheers, Terry

PS - Reading Pete Brown's "White Rooms and Imaginary Westerns". A splendid read and you're made mention of.
