Bahooka Family Restaurant from “Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas”

Feb 27th, 2013 | By | Category: Movie Locations

This past Sunday morning, my mom emailed me a link to a Los Angeles Magazine article about the upcoming closure of a veritable San Gabriel Valley institution, Bahooka Family Restaurant in Rosemead, with the admonishment, “You’d better take pictures!
