Don Drysdale's Dugout

To go along with a Don Drysdale's Dugout mug I featured a couple of years ago is the above (and below) matchbook from his restaurant in the valley.

I don't know much about the place other than some unwanted publicity that came up in 1966. That was the year Koufax and Drysdale refused to accept the salaries given to them by the Dodgers and held out together to force the Dodgers to pay them more. Seeing this, Drysdale's employees at his bar decided to do the same thing- demanding higher wages.
