      No, thats above the pawn shop. Crazy Girls is a few blocks away, south of Sunset – this is at Hollywood Blvd. And also right above the liquor store where the owner was killed a few years ago.

        it wasn’t the owner that was killed,it was one of his employees.

    Saw the window broken out above the Pawn Shop. Was that the location of the party? Saw metal pieces scattered in the street too.
