In 1965 the international Laurel and Hardy appreciation society, The Sons of the Desert, was created. Its “founding tent,” or Oasis No. 1, began in The Lambs’ Grille, with the blessing of Stan Laurel. Among its founders and first members were Lambs: Al Kilgore, John McCabe, and Frank Nastasi. Current Lambs’ council member Bob Greenberg is a loyal member.
