Oh my, what an interesting story! And what an excellent tradition, gathering for singing and toasts around the roaring fire on Christmas Eve!

The rest of the story..
The Plaque: THE CHIMNEY- Built in the late 1920s as a Chevron Service Station, it was purchased in 1935 by the Tunisons who added the bar and restaurant with the fireplace. In December, 1942 bartender Ray Bellengier was shot and killed by an angry patron. The building burned in 1960, but the chimney remained much as it looks today. It is the icon of a Westwood, California charitable group The Chimney Fund. On Christmas eve theres a tradition to gather at the chimney, start a roaring fire, sing Christmas carols and toast those who have gone to the golden hills. The rumors that it was a dance hall and bordello and why it burned down have not been confirmed.
