Los Angeles Jeanette/Nelson 2024 birthday bash tickets available now!

Join us to celebrate the June birthdays of Jeanette and Nelson! We are now going to meet at the Smoke House in Burbank, with new and returning guest speakers.  Our meal is a lavish buffet brunch in the famous restaurant plus a special birthday cake. The restaurant opened in 1946;  Jeanette and Nelson ate there, as did most of the Hollywood stars of the day. It’s across from Warner Bros. studios so remains popular with industry folks today.  Price includes food, our private room and everything except alcoholic drinks (other than the free mimosas that come with the buffet) which can be ordered from your server.

One of our guest speakers will be Cora Sue Collins, famed child actress from “Naughty Marietta”, “Queen Christina” and other great MGM films.
