entertainment that would ap-
peal to what I refer to as the
`action people' — that group in
its early and middle 20s who
like to go out and have a good
time."
It was this reasoning, in
part, that was behind the
name change in 1972 from
"Supper Club" to "Steak and
Lobster House."
Besides being the first to in-
troduce smorgasbord while
managing the Metropole,
Mike and his Ibp Hat Supper
Club were also the first in
Windsor to have a brunch and
have an outdoor cafe . . . And
who can forget the buffets
with those highly polished
and intricately carved lion's
heads at both ends suggesting
a style of entertaining that
not many restaurants took
the time to provide . . . even
today in this age of fast foods
and franchising.
You see a flavor of Mike's
native Yugoslavia at the Top
Hat . . . with its authentic
10th century English dining
room, hand-carved wooden
beams finished in the style of
that period.
Mike's wife, Mary, a
sculptor and artist of some
note in her own right, helps
out at the Top Hat in
whatever capacity she may be
needed . . . Their son, Steve,
has been master of cere-
monies for the past 10 years.
Over the years, the 'hp Hat
has become somewhat of a
family tradition for many .. .
Couples who 20 years ago
celebrated their own engage-
ment at the Top Hat often
return and proudly introduce
Mike to their children who
just became engaged and
have come to celebrate at the
Top Hat . . . The Top Hat has
also always been the "in"
place to go for dinner dances
following school proms.
Mike says that parents, who
came to the Top Hat after
their own high school proms,
call him up to say, "My kids
are coming to celebrate.
Would you take care of -
them?" . . . This personal con-
tact with his clientele helps to
explain not only Mike
Drakich's own popularity, but
also the Top Hat's longevity
in a business which carries a
track record of failure and
foreclosure.
The Top Hat's continued
success is further augmented
by the uncanny ability of its
owner to pick up on new
trends and directions and to
adapt them to the local
restaurant scene . . . The tim-
ing of the transition from sup-
per club to steak house is a
case in point.
30th anniversary of rIbp Hat
Steak & Lobster House in
Windsor is a major achieve-

ment in the restaurant
business . . . Its reputation is
one of high standard.
The top hat, cane and white
gloves symbolize Top Hat
Supper Club and presently
rIbp Hat Steak & Lobster
House . . . a legend filled with
international pride.
GET WELL WISHES to
Sid Newman of Star Deli .. .
recuperating from hospital
stay . . . but back working a
few hours a day now.
EVER HEAR of a beer
tasting? . . . That's what'll be
at Excalibur Restaurant this
Monday, 7 p.m. to 9 p.m., in
the first-time venture with
Merchant of Vino . . . It's call-
ed "Springfest Gourmet Beer
Tasting" . . . with English,
Italian and Spanish cheeses,
meats, French, German,
American mustards, breads
. . . Even pickles that go with
beer in England (Branston
and Piccadilly pickles), tradi-
tional there with cheese,
bread and beer.
There'll also be just about
every non-alcoholic beer
available . . . and with many,
you can't tell the difference
. . . plus ales, pilsners and
lagers.
$20 admission tickets are
available at Excalibur and
Merchant of Vino.
ORIGINAL STAGE Deli
in Oak Park (Nine Mile) with
new ownership, still retains
the same deli menu and good
food considered by many to be
among the best . . . No more
salt or pepper on tables in the
evening . . . they're on request
. . . And added to the tradi-
tional Jewish-style dining are
a number of low-cholesterol
and low-calorie dishes . . . like
stir-fry chicken cooked in its
own juices : . . no butter .. .
and skinned before cooking.
PEGASUS Banquet and
Conference Center on Monroe
seats from 200 to 700, with
cocktail parties accomodating
up to 1,000 . . . There's a large
1,600 square foot dance floor,
master sound system, pro-
tected parking, etc. . . . And so
the legend of Pegasus in
Greektown and Pegasus at
the Fisher Building con-
tinues. 1=1
