Brick Road Leads to 'Oz' Exhibit at Restaurant

February 25, 1993|ANNE MICHAUD | Anne Michaud is a staff writer for The Times Orange County Edition

CBS Television will broadcast "The Wizard of Oz" Friday night at 8, and the timing couldn't be better for Planet Hollywood. The Santa Ana restaurant has put together a collection of "Oz" memorabilia, including a pair of ruby slippers which the restaurant says is one of four pairs used in the film.

The display also includes Judy Garland's Dorothy costume, an Emerald City jacket and jeweled gloves, a Munchkin hat, and the hat and boots worn by Wicked Witch Margaret Hamilton.

The collection will be on display until the end of April. 1641 West Sunflower. (714) 434-7827.

The Rose & Crown Pub and Restaurant is pouring its tap ales and serving its fish and chips from a new location. Last Saturday, the British-style restaurant moved into a vacant space in downtown Anaheim that formerly held a Fuddruckers franchise. The Rose & Crown had been located on State College Boulevard in Anaheim since 1981.

Owners Keith and Ann Phillips said the lease in their former location expires in October, and they could not reach an agreement with their landlord. Also, the city's Redevelopment Agency has extended the Phillipses a $250,000 loan to reopen in an area that Anaheim has been trying to rejuvenate. The new location is "upscale by a couple of steps," Keith Phillips said. 20 S. Anaheim Blvd. (714) 778-5606.

Prego Ristorante completes its dinner and opera series on Friday with "The Marriage of Figaro," performed at the Orange County Performing Arts Center. The package includes a three-course dinner and ticket to the opera for $85 per person. The seats alone would normally sell for $65 through the box office. 18420 Von Karman Ave., Irvine. (714) 553-1333.

The National Sports Grill & Bar is hosting a celebrity pool tournament on Sunday, featuring an appearance by Rams tight end Jim Price. The Buena Park restaurant and sports bar--which has 12 pool tables and 44 television screens--is also planning an auction beginning at 7 p.m. Proceeds will go to United Cerebral Palsy.

Up for bid are a football jersey autographed by Rams running back Cleveland Gary, a basketball signed by Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, autographed boxing gloves from Evander Holyfield and Oscar de la Hoya, and more. 5970 Orangethorpe Ave. (714) 523-0803.
