I saw something else about Thelma Todd and the Sidewalk Café at http://www.kcet.org/living/food/the-nosh/thelma-todds-tragedy-the-forgotten-life-of-the-original-celebrity-restaurateur.html
This one was hard to read, because they obscured the view with something that invited you to subscribe for fifty dollars. My advice would be to buy Donati's book instead, because that was probably where they got their information from anyway.
The story about Thelma Todd drinking three fingers of rye whiskey comes from Rudy Schafer ( he told it to me, I repeated it afterwards.) But that blog said something about Thelma Todd ordering "another round", which sounds as if she kept ordering more, and this was not in the original story.
