[hide_me]While there have been a number of "original" Brown Derby restaurants, the first one opened in 1926. The one in MGM, I think, opened in 1989.[/hide_me]

[hide_me]Are you sure? Because I've verified these years on a couple of different sources.[/hide_me]

[hide_me]According to Dave Smith the Hollywood Studios version of the Brown Derby opened on May 1, 1989.

I had to do some research on the real Brown Derby restaurant, but it appears it opened on Valentine's Day in 1929.[/hide_me]

The answer to this week's question is... 1928 and 1989 (the plaque on the front of the Brown Derby says 1928 as the opening date of the Brown Derby, so that was the answer I was going with)

1928 was when the second Brown Derby opened--the original one opened in 1926. The first one was the only one that was actually shaped like a derby, so I suppose you could argue that architecturally the MGM one is based on the successive ones, however you could just as easily argue that the second one was just part of a chain of restaurants based on the original.

My entire argument is based on a plaque outside the Brown Derby. Eric didn't believe me so I texted him a photo of it and on the plaque it says 1928 so that's what I was going off of.

Note to self: No more Brown Derby trivia!
