Circa 1900, legendary filmmaker D.W. Griffith built what is currently known as Silver Lake restaurant and club El Cid. Years later, he used the venue to screen his highly controversial Birth of a Nation. Rumor has it moviegoers were charged two bucks to see the flick, an outrageous price in those days, so you can imagine what those same audiences would think today if they could walk down El Cid's uneven stairs and order a $30 margarita. Assuming their heads didn't explode upon viewing the drink menu, they'd discover that the cost of the beverage comes from the inclusion of Don Julio 1942 (because it can't be the Grand Marnier, lime juice or sweet-and-sour). Then again, if the people of the early 1900s could sample tequila from the 1940s, they'd be sipping away while daydreaming about flying cars and hover boards, because that's what humans do when we fantasize about the future.
