Last night I dreamed that the Fedora restaurant was taken out of the hands of its current owner and given back to the original owner--except, in the dream, the original owner was a man named Alfredo. He had fought for the restaurant in court and won, thanks to an odd rent control law.
While much of the Fedora had been destroyed in its gutting and remodeling, a great deal of it was still intact. Alfredo did his best to bring it back to its pre-gutting glory. The menu became Italian again. Old photos were returned to the walls--mostly autographed headshots of Judy Garland and Barbra Streisand. If it was a gay place before, now it had become a super gay place.
The men's bathroom opened up into a huge space filled with Broadway musical memorabilia. Everything was glittering and wonderful.
I could not believe I was free to enjoy Fedora once again.
