My first taste of Germany was off of Topanga Canyon Blvd. in Woodland Hills!

I discovered German Cold Cuts International during high school in the late 1980s while searching not for beer or bratwurst, but 'Ravioli,' a popular German sitcom about kids left home alone while their parents go on vacation. (Hey! Now there's an idea for a movie..!)

Lucky for me, owner Ursula Rahn not only had 'Ravioli' to offer; she also cared about my wanting to learn German, generously letting me and my best friend borrow the 'Ravioli' VHS tapes whenever they weren't rented out.

I have never forgotten her kindness and support.

It has been a minute, and German Cold Cults International SHOULD have celebrated its 46th anniversary on October 1st, 2020: "This is the first time ever that I haven't celebrated," Ursula shared with me today. "Thanks to COVID-19 hitting everyone even harder now, I don't know how much longer we will be able to stay open."
