Vel West didn’t want to reveal her age but she did say she’s been working in restaurants across LA since 1960. She’s been at The Dresden in Los Feliz for nearly 18 years. “I love the people. If you’re in a place long enough you become friends with the customers and their kids. When the people pass on, I can still see their kids.”

Originally from France, Bernand Inchauspe, 81, has been a server at Taix French Restaurant in Echo Park for 55 years. Taix just feels like home. “I don’t want to retire. I’m lucky they still have me. I plan to stay as long as my body lets me. I see other people retire and they go away. We all go but they go faster. My opinion is you have to keep moving.”
