Ambassador Cam, #36


Ambassador remains, 9:45 a.m., January 22, 2008

It's possibly all over today, as the remaining pieces of the Ambassador -- mostly what's left of the Cocoanut Grove -- are demolished. We've already paid our final respects to the grand old hotel via the Ambassador Hotel wake two years ago; now it's time to let it go, I suppose.

I'd love to interview you for a student film project I'm doing about The Ambassador Hotel. Please let me know as soon as possible if you might be willing to do an on-camera interview, or contribute in some other way.

Thank you!

Notice that there is a blue sign in front of the Coconut Grove.

Does anyone know what it is all about?

People realize that they can do nothing about it, but you cannot keep people from keeping something alive in their hearts. That you can do nothing about.

Right now, it is the afternoon in the midwest, on January 31st.

Did they tear down the Coconut Grove yet?

I'm still looking for interview subjects that are willing to do an on-camera interview for my student film project to talk about their memories of the Ambassador and how they feel about its loss. If you are interested, please email me ASAP (my school quarter is ending soon!) at AmbassadorFilm@gmail.com

If you're interested, please email me and I will provide you with any information that you need.

I have one of the Silver Champagne Buckets they used to serve champagne in to VIPs like Frank Sanatra, Robert Kennedy and me. I'm getting old and would love to sell it to somebody that would cherish and the history it holds. Just imagine if it could talk, the stories it holds.

How old is your post Bill? Today is Jan.6, 2016. If it's still available, I am interested and it old mean the world to me. My Father was the Executive Chef @ the Ambassador and was an Amazing man! I inherited many of his Ambassador items from his room and cherish every one of them.... He passed a few years ago but I have many fond memories there, at the hotel💕

I have one of the silver stands that held the Champagne buckets. I purchased it at the liquidation sale of the hotel's contents that was conducted in 1991 by National Content Liquidators Inc. I'm 80 years old now and it is time to pass it on to someone else. You can reach me at 323 462-2272.
