Okay, how did I miss out on all this? Was it purely the demise of big band music? Did rock music kill having this much fun. Rock music certainly doesn't lend itself to sedate viewing, fancy clothes, even dancing.
I know there are a few places like this still around but when I was a kid I babysat for a family who came home at five in the morning because a night out was at a nightclub for them.
Almost every movie about a certain sort of person in the thirties and forties had a scene in a club like this one. Have you ever been in a nightclub? I went to the Latin Casino on a date at 16, but that was it for me. Too bad.
My story "A Game of Hide and Seek" is up on Yellow Mama. Thank you Cindy Rosmus.
