The Beatles Booth in Burbank

Hey there great people! Here's a story. Once upon a time the Beatles came to Burbank California when they were on their Help tour in August 1965. They had lunch at a local joint that was famous for its burgers. It was just down the road and over the hill from the Hollywood Bowl. John, Paul, George and Ringo went in secretly and sat at the farthest booth away from the windows and main entrance for privacy so they wouldn't be mobbed. 

Afterwards the owner of Bob's Big Boy Restaurant (which is today the oldest Bob's in America dating to 1947) placed a plaque there commemorating the occasion. People kept stealing it over the years so he moved it to the front where it's out in the open and visible to all.

But the Burbank locals remember which booth it is and here's a picture of it. One of my most favorite places in the world to hang out with friends.
