Hollywood CA: Musso & Frank’s Grill Marks 100th Birthday PDF Print E-mail

If your travels take you to Hollywood Boulevard, consider having brunch, lunch or dinner in the classic restaurant at number 6667 on the famous Walk of the Stars. There Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr and other classic celebs often dined. You may even find yourself in the booth favored by Bogart and Bacall.

Of course, prices have changed just a bit since then. Order a grilled prime beef of rib platter today costing $44, along with a martini at $8.50 and ice cream sundae for $10. In 1919, when Charlie Chaplin and Mary Pickford were favorite customers, the prices were $4.00, 50¢ and 15¢.

Amsterdam, The Netherlands: New Tourist Shops Verboden PDF Print E-mail

One of the world’s favorite cities of your travel4seniors.com editor is clamping down on a favorite activity. Whenever there to wander the streets, especially at holiday season, we enjoy shopping for the latest home-grown Dutch souvenirs.

However, the city council has determined there are just too many of the shops and attract too many tourists to crowd the streets. Because they declare it’s inconveniencing the local citizens, there can be no new shops. However, since Amsterdam’s economy depends on healthy tourism, the ban doesn’t make a helluva lot of sense.
