Here I am checking out the jukebox at Chinatown classic Yee Mee Loo, best dive bar ever, circa 1989 or so. It closed soon after. Most of you know that venerable bartender Richard went on to work at the Good Luck Bar, which was sort of a semi-classy recreation of Yee Mee Loo. The Chinoiserie wooden bar itself resides on Glendale Blvd., in the space that used to be Cinnabar. That space is due to re-open very soon as Palate from Octavio Becerra, and that bar had better be intact, or there'll be some splainin' to do.
