a pic from 2007 in front of the much loved and much missed Yukon Restaurant, in West Hollywood. For years, it was the social hub for the TG community. Every nite out inevitably ended up there with people hanging out in its worn vinyl booths until dawn. You could always find someone to dish the T, or a friendly waiter to serve you some. The parking lot was a great place to hang out and many drive by friendships were formed there. Sadly, its owner for many years sold the restaurant, and its long term manager Duane stayed on afterward and kept it going, but he passed away from a heart attack, and the restaurant closed within a few weeks. No place has emerged to take its place and while the social wheel has kept spinning, its much more random without the Yukon at its center and Hollywood, after hours, is a much less friendly place.
