Proud Bird restaurant at LAX.
These days, if you want a bite to eat before flying out of LAX, chances are you'll grab a burger at McDonalds or a muffin at Starbucks. But back in the day, flying was a bit more of a glamorous, leisurely affair.
Travelers often began their adventures with a meal at a restaurant called the Proud Bird. We were sad to learn this morning that the Proud Bird will be closing by the end of the year.
Joining us for a look back at this eatery is the King of Kitsch, Mr. Charles Phoenix.
