Historic Googie Restaurant Reborn

The Parasol coffee shop, a classic example of "Googie" architecture located in nearby Seal Beach, California, was slated for demolition a couple of years ago.

The demolition plans fell through and instead the restaurant was remodeled. It is now a Mel's Drive-In with great '50s decor.

Hundreds of people turned out for yesterday's grand opening.

A happy ending for both classic California architecture and those of us who will be able to enjoy the new restaurant.
