Tucked away along the alley behind Cafe Tropical stands a row of 58 cigarettes. One lipstick-stained Camel stands out. As local legend has it, whosoever draws this cigarette from the concrete is the rightful King of Silverlake.
King of Silver Lake? Maybe if you can time travel me back to 1995.
Are those GIANT cigarettes? Can I bum one?
A pleasant change from the three drunk homeless dudes and pee-infused mattress normally found in that same alley.
Man, I gotta start getting out more again. I live essentially around the corner and one block away from this and wouldn’t have found out about it without Ron and losanjealous. Thank you!
I’d rather be the lowliest peon in Pacoima than be the king of Silver Lake.
