In this photo taken Aug. 16, 2012, Bar owner Frank Borst, left, gives a hand to patron Bob Wardsworth, 66, a Vietnam veteran originally from N.Y. at the King Eddy Saloon, one of the oldest and most colorful dive bars in Los Angeles. The King Eddy Saloon located near the Skid Row will close next September after more than 100 years as a bar, Prohibition-era speakeasy, post -Prohibition bar again, and home away home to Charles Bukowski, John Fante and numerous others.
