Mecca Bombing, 1957.

A vendor has listed a cocktail napkin advertising four Los Angeles night spots, including the Mecca Cafe at 5841 S. Normandie Ave. Six people were killed when a man who had been thrown out of the club threw a five-gallon bucket of gas into into the Mecca and set it on fire. Bidding starts at $9.99.

Here’s my 2007 post on the Club Mecca bombing.
