One of the restaurants mentioned a few times in the comments was Club 64, which stood for years on the east side of Council Bluffs. I only remember dining there twice, but I remember enjoying it both times. I know it was there as early as the mid 1970s, and from evidence, it lasted well into the 1990s.
An original Club 64 menu has surfaced, and I hope those of you who remember Club 64 (and those who don't as well) will enjoy it.
So, courtesy of a friend of mine, who we will refer to as "BBTBABE" (LOL!) :), here is a set of scans from a ca. 1995 Club 64 menu.
First, the cover:
"Mobile [sic] Award Winner?" :)
Inside, the main menu section:
And the rear, sandwiches and libations and such:
"Mad Dog?" Hmmmmmm. :)
It's kinda fun to reflect on the style and the comments they used ...
"Prepared in our kitchen."
Well, uh, where else would it be prepared? The cellar? The restroom? :)
I guess they really mean that it's prepared in OUR kitchen, instead of THEIR kitchen down the street, right? :)
"All meat ..."
What else would it be? (Yes, I know what a Veggieburger is.) :)
"Help Wanted: Proofreader. Apply in person, Club 64. Experence not necesary." :) :)
Yeah, yeah, I know ... they were in the restaurant business, not the typography business! :)
Oh well ... :)
Thanks again, Bbtbabe! :)
