Shandy--the  idea  of Silvani  hanging out in Topanga  Canyon  is  hilarious.

Two things I recall about the Palomino in the 70s.

You could drop by for a beer in the afternoon and see the band(s) doing their set-up and sound check for that night's show. Second thing was a sign out front announcing Happy Hour was 8 am-10 am. Never checked that out so can't say if it was a joke.

If you have the street address, it's easy to see what's there now . just use Google Maps, zoom in and go to Street View

I just spent a minute and here's what I found,  6907 Lankershim Boulevard is now the Le Monde Banquet Hall and the area looks to be mostly small businees/light industrial .. collision repair shops, liquor stores, auto parts places, etc.

Well ... no change in neighborhood in terms of bold print above! Always had those. That's North Hollywood in a nutshell, with maybe a few porn studios thrown in.

Interesting sidelight, Gary Busey held several benefits at The Palomino in the late 80s to raise $$$ to hire lobbyists to oppose a bill calling for mandatory use of helmets for motorcyclists. Right after his biggest event, he crashed his hog on Robertson (I think) and almost died. Severe head trauma, IIRC. Un-helmeted head, meet cement curb.
