A lovely birthday lunch at The Proud Bird. This restaurant has a long and wonderful aviation history. It has been around for over 40 years. And unfortunately, it's a dying breed. In 2013, they were being threatening with closed. Because the land is super expensive. It was saved and they are trying to get it historic landmarked, so LAX can't demo it. I would be sad to see it go. LA is not a city has preserves its history.
