Remember the old Shakey's Pizza joints with Mr. Shakey himself adorning the sign. Culver City, famous for preservation of historical sites, is home to one of these. If you're ever driving up Washington Boulevard, don't forget to give Mr. Shakey a wave. He may actually tip his chefs hat at you. Wouldn't that be a sight to see?

Shakey's Pizza was founded by Sherwood "Shakey" Johnson in 1954 in a remodeled grocery store in Sacramento. On the first night it opened, Sherwood played the piano and his partner Ed Plummer served only beer, since their pizza ovens were not yet completed. Don't forget to order Shakey's famous MoJo Potatoes!
