According to the LA Conservancy, Norm's has been sold - recently in OUR news as the ladies' room death location of Francesca Hilton.
The new owners have applied for (AND RECEIVED!) a permit to destroy it, despite it's acknowledgement as an Historic (By LA standards) Googie style building.
They say it won't happen anytime soon, and there will be a fight.
