Some ghosts (though it's a little late in the season for it) aren't what you think. They aren't wailing waifs or glowing skulls. They're a restaurant called the Spanish Kitchen. I'm not talking about the Spanish Kitchen on La Cienega -- decorated like there's a South America Land in Disneyland and it's in it, though they have a sign that is an authentic reproduction of the sign at the original Spanish Kitchen.

Only in Los Angeles has the landmark been destroyed but there is some kind of authentic reproduction hanging around.
