as far as I remember in summer 1997 don hahn, john watkiss and myself started the PEGBAR CLUB. it was a ‘joint venture’ with a small restaurant PIACERE in the industrial area of glendale, where the DISNEY animation studio was located for a while and where the DREAMWORKS studio is today. the idea behind it was to create a reason to meet wednesdays after work, and that was for everybody in the animation business in L.A. not only disney. the photo-collage below is from the opening night. for all different reasons it did not last for too long, maybe the area was not too inviting. but at least for some weeks it was something new in boring burbank/glendale.
