For the second time in less than a month, state and local law enforcement officials have closed down a bar that police have described as a public nuisance. Investigators from the state Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control and the Los Angeles Police Department posted a license-revocation notice on the Maeva bar at 13484 Van Nuys Blvd. Thursday morning. "This has been probably the most problematic bar in the entire Foothill Division," said LAPD Sgt. Kris Pitcher.

Celebrities spend a lot of time in bars and restaurants, and many of them seem compelled to eventually own one. Drawing a crowd is certainly easier with a big name attached, but why would a famous actor or musician want the hassle? Tax write-off? Vanity project? Most likely, hospitality is in the DNA of any great entertainer. "For people in the industry, a big part of the draw is working with creative minds, so an obvious perk is enjoying that off the clock. Think back to the Rat Pack — the idea of powerhouses in a protected space at a table for drinks and great food.

Responding to complaints by residents, state and local law enforcement officials Wednesday posted license-revocation notices at two East Los Angeles bars, one of which was the site of two slayings during the past five years. "When I walked by on my way to McDonald's at night I saw people [urinating] in front and drunk old men fighting in the parking lot," said resident Raquel Rodriquez, while walking by one of the bars, the Beehive.

Nobody batted an eye when a newcomer walked into the Cowboy Palace Saloon. True, it resembles a real honky-tonk--right out of a Clint Eastwood film--down home and dim lit, with red vinyl booths, a lot of old wood and enough neon Budweiser signs to fill a beer factory. A row of boots lines the bar, a string of Stetsons hangs on a wall. But this is the '90s version of a honky-tonk.

No one was lonely Friday evening at Hank's Bar in downtown Los Angeles. But everyone in the jampacked New York-style saloon was a little bit sad as they gathered for a rainy-night remembrance of Hank Holzer, the colorful Damon Runyon-type character who opened the Grand Avenue tavern 40 years ago and who died last month at the age of 88. All the regular characters were on hand as they lifted their glasses in many a farewell toast to Hank. The cops and the con men.
