Worked in the “Elbo Room”, Ft. Lauderdale in 1964, also owned and operated my own “Elbo Room” in a small town in south central Virginia from 1979 to 1984. We had the first liquor by the drink license issued in Lunenburg county Virginia. Also worked as a cook in the “Yankee Clipper” in Hollywood Beach in the “Clipper Room” on top and the supper club… The “Polynesian Room” and also “Leonardo’s” Italian Restaurant in Pompano beach. Lenny Lewis was the owner and his son and daughter in law ran the restaurant. Lenny also owned “Lenny’s Lounge” or it may have had the tag of “GoGo” south of Hollywood as I recall. Not sure of the spelling of his first name but if you were around then, you know who I am talking about. Also, do you happen to remember…. The “Pickle Barrel”… The “Sugar Shack”… “Porky’s”… and so many other little bars that were around then… wow… what memories… and do any of you remember the “Hurricane parties” that took place in the Elbo Room back in the day??? There was one in ’64 as I recall, I think it was in late summer of ’64… anyway, quite interesting times.
