|Hollywood Souvenirs for Sale|
I'd read about the gigantic Walgreens Drug Store at Sunset and Vine in the heart of Hollywood, but I'd never been there. We zoomed over there on Monday. WOW! This place is immense!
It's not only a drug store, but it's a grocery store, make-up and beauty section, liquor store, yogurt shop and more. It's extremely spacious and open.

|It's so "Hollywood" inside this store, that they have a red carpet-style backdrop for photos! Next time I'll wear my tiara and ball gown!|
The last time I was in a store on this corner was probably in the early 1970s when Wallich's Music City occupied this spot. I can still hear the radio jingle, sung to the tune of "Rock-a-bye Baby." "It's Music City, Sunset and Vine..."
The Wallich's building has been replaced by a multi-use building with stores and restuarants on the first and second floors and apartments on the upper floors. You can now live at Walgreens.
