ty's most striking historical
landmarks and a picturesque
site for passing train travelers
... with its beautiful Richard-
sonian Romanesque style de-
sign.
C.A. Muer Corp. purchased
the depot from Penn Central in
fall of 1969 ... Penn Central
leased the main building until
renovation began in May 1970
... By December of that same
year, the interior of the depot
was transformed ... and Gandy
Dancer restaurant opened for
business.
SORRY TO SEE that Good
Earth at Tally Hall, Orchard
Lake Rd. at 14 Mile, has closed

man ... Hopes are that he will

TWO CELEBRATIONS on
tap for Ron Coden this month
... as he returns to Comedy
Crossing, lower level of Red
Cedars, Telegraph and Nine
Mile, tonight through Aug. 30.
Ron is celebrating his 25th
year in show business . :. and
June 11 gets congrats on 43rd
birthday.
He's remembered by many
from the Oak Park Follies years
back ... along with Joe Forbes,
Harold "Tu Tu" Haber, myself
and so many others.
In 1961, right after gradua-
tion from Oak Park High, Ron
and his trio, The Impromptus,
played their first paid gig at
Pine Knob restaurant ... sound-
ing much like the Kingston
Trio, tops on the charts at 'that
time.
With his present group, Steve
Fava, bass guitar, and Ron
Blight, also on guitar, Ron still
does Kingston Trio numbers as
part of the show.
In the early '60s, Ron gained
much recognition as a folk
singer at former Raven Gallery,
Greenfield and 12 Mile, now site
of Sweet Lorraine's.
People like Delores and Mike
Sylvester of Dearborn, take top
honors so far as Ron's most
rabid fans (winners will be
guests of owners Lenore and
Jack Freed at Comedy Crossing)
thise who have seen Ron the
most times ... They go over the
300 mark, from Pine Knob Res-
taurant in 1961 . . . and had
their 40th wedding anniversary
at spot Ron was playing.
Special events at the shows,
June 13-14, will honor Ron ...
including presentations by
longtime friends and fans .. .
and, of course, the cutting be-
tween shows of a combination
anniversary and birthday cake.
ATRIUM ADDITION will be
new part of Clock on Southfield
and Ten Mile Rd. ... Owner
John Kanakis may also change
the name ... not a bad idea ...
especially since the Clock chain
is no more.
WHO'S WHERE ... George
Golematis ... former owner of
Giorgio's on Greenfield and Lin-
coln and in Birmingham ...
George now has Annie's Kitchen
on Telegraph Rd. near Chicago
Blvd. ... serving the thing he
knows best ... gourmet-style
food at his kind of prices .. .

"220 Band" ... at Nicky's, Top
of Troy Bldg., W. Big Beaver,
Tuesday through Saturday ...
"Heavenn" ... at Chives, Groes-
beck Hwy., Tuesday through
Saturday.
BIG CHANGE IS in store for
folks when Alia's opens at
former site of Irving's Deli on
Greenfield near 11 Mile ...
Complete alteration ... family
style restaurant menu, not deli-
catessen fare ... although
there'll still be bagels, Kaiser
and onion rolls ... Sunday lox,
cream cheese and smoked fish
... Alia and Jim Sage of Re-
mal's in Oak Park will open
their Southfield spot this month
... There'll be a manager at
both places, while Jim bounces
back and forth ... and Alia con-
centrates on having their second
healthy employment for a baby
sitter.

Slade's romantic comedy Same
Time, Next Year to "The Club"

The play by Jimmy Launce
Productions, involves relation-
ship between happily married

own and remain faithful to their
spouses ... except once a year

HOUSEHOLD HINTS ...
Garlic will keep indefinitely in a
sealed jar filled with vegetable
oil ... and it won't smell up the
refrigerator, either ... For a
quick way to get garlic odor off
of your hands, wash with salt,
baking soda and warm water ...
Spices lose potency with age ...
They'll keep for about a year,
but should be checked out reg-
ularly ... Ever think of using a
hair dryer as quick aid in de-
frosting?

WAKE UP!

TO PANACHE

A New Restaurant and much more!

At • Panache (pronounced by us Pa-nosh), we
know that you're really the movers and • the
shakers. But time and time again, we hear it
said that you may be the sleepy, bedroom
types who turn in early.

So once and for all, let's put the rumor to rest.
Stop in at Panache, because just like you,
we've got style, flair and self-confidence.

Exquisite food served with a European flair at
American prices. Visit our sophisticated
lounge with the only dance floor in Birming-
ham.

Top 40 entertainment Tuesday through Sun-
day 9 p.m. till 2 a.m. Light Jazz on Monday
nights featuring such perennial favorites as
Alexander Zonjic and Bugs Beddow.
