La cabana is Gone
I see they have finally torn down the remains of the old Memories building north of Delmar opposite the long gone Delmar Drive in. The place has been around in one form or another since the 1960s when it was Triglia's Country House. By 1972 it was the Mark V which had a fire in 1979, and then it became an Italian restaurant in 1979 called Leonardi Mark V, then it was Memories restaurant and lounge and then it became La Cabana a Hispanic restaurant and lounge. In 2009 the building had a fire and then it just sit there and deteriorated down. Some time in the last week it was hauled off. I understand the bricks used in the building were salvaged from the Delmar train station when it was torn down. Now the only thing left is a concrete pad.
