A Night on the Town
Anyone who likes the way I look can thank these two. That Mel Tormé photo I posted last night reminded me of this gem from the family collection, and of the good old days of crooners in tuxedos. Mom and dad didn't have a big entertainment budget back in 1968, but on this special occasion, they made the three-hour drive to Chicago to see Jack Jones perform at the fabulous Empire Room in the Palmer House Hilton. Their visit was immortalized by the house photographer, probably using a Speed Graphic or similar camera. For the record, I wasn't invited along on this trip; I had to stay home with grandma.
