The Kansas City Barbeque, where the “sleazy bar scene” from Top Gun was shot, was completely torched yesterday afternoon. We walk by this every morning - it’s between our place and the train station. Apparently it was some kind of kitchen fire. It’s the end of an era… mind you, it’s an era that ended years ago, but still.
The tragic part is that apparently a bunch of movie props burned in the fire. I adore movie props - an addiction I developed while working at Warner Bros. I could spend hours in the Harry Potter museum on the Warner Bros. backlot. I’m going to sit here in silence for a few minutes, and just mourn those lost movie props.
