An item from the January 29, 1974 Chronicle-Telegram reported that the Parents Without Partners regular meeting would be held on Feb. 15th at 8 p.m. at Miller's Supper Club, Elyria Avenue and Lake Ave.
Strangely enough, yours truly performed at several of these Parents Without Partner functions at the Supper Club, providing dance music as a member of the Four Links. For many years, whenever I drove by the former Supper Club building at the corner of Elyria and Lake Avenue, I thought of those gigs with a smile.
And then suddenly, the building was gone.
Highway improvements – specifically the addition of a short access lane and stop sign for Elyria Avenue traffic to more safely pull out onto Lake Avenue – claimed the Supper Club building, and apparently the former Miller home, fruit stand and barn as well.
Although the corner of Elyria and Lake Avenues is empty and barren today, it's nice to know that in the 1940s and 50s, it was alive with the sounds of people enjoying great food and entertainment at the Supper Club.
