Dresden Restaurant and Lounge

Mikel recommended that Lesley and I check out this lounge act at the Dresden Room Restaurant in Los Angeles. He did not recommend that we eat there. Yet we ate there anyway. The Dresden is like the many supper-club type restaurants located here in Wisconsin, particularly in areas outside of Milwaukee. I'm sure that the old-time supper-club experience is a pleasant novelty for people who live in Los Angeles, but it was a disappointment for me, who has eaten far too many times at these establishments. In my opinion, the food at these kind of places is usually mediocre, heavy, and leaves you with a feeling of regret.

Following dinner, we did see Marty and Elayne perform in the lounge. Marty and Elayne have been performing at the Dresden since 1982, so you have to give them points for longevity and persistence. The photo of them on the web site is from 1982; the years have taken their toll since then. Marty and Elayne were amusing and entertaining in a cheesy and ironic sort of way. But after eating such a heavy Wisconsin-esque dinner and since it was after 11 p.m. Pacific Time, I was really tired. My body was on Central Time (two hours ahead), so that didn't help matters. Fortunately, Lesley recognized that I was shutting down, and we left after seeing Marty and Elayne perform a few numbers.

Well, at least we look fantastic. Hey, maybe we can be lounge singers! Oh wait, we already are.
