The stylish ad for the beloved Vermilion eatery ran in the Lorain Journal on October 18, 1968 – giving the newspaper’s readers plenty of time to plan to attend.
If they did attend, it looks like it was a good time, with a costume contest, as well as dancing music provided by Jim Perrino.
Jim Perrino was very popular locally. You can find many online mentions of the organist's gigs right into the early 1980s, at places such as the Tiffany's Steakhouse & Lounge, and Libra Capri.
