ood dining can also be
considered good enter-
tainment . . . It offers
joy to the participants
almost as much as a fine com-
edian, singer, orchestra corn-
bo, etc.
This is why Carl's Chop
House continues to shine in
its exalted status as a legend.
A second successful mock
"murder mystery" by Carl's
brought about still another
revelation, plus the solving of
this whodunit.
Carl's Chop House on
Grand River off the John
Lodge Expressway, truly one
of Detroit's premier dining
spots of high note, showed fur-
ther flexibility in its capa-
bilities to please people,
which it has been doing since
the '30s.
Amid the large, sturdy-
looking Carl's Chop House,
with heavy beams, dark
mahogany wood, stained
glass windows, red leather
chairs, white tablecloths,
white napkins, draped win-
dows, etc., in an atmosphere of
hardy elegance, the addi-
tional feature of on-premise
theater added to the many
entertaining ways of this
venerable dining institution
which continues as one of
Detroit's best dollar-for-dollar
restaurant values.
Like good wine, Carl's Chop
House seems to get better
with age as it continually
ranks among the Midwest's
finest dining operations.
The actors and actresses
were at Carl's "to film a com-
mercial" and infiltrated
among the tables, talking to
customers while answering
questions which might lead to
clues as to who the culprit is.
Peggy Thorpe, stage mana-
ger of the first season by
Jewish Ensemble Theatre
(JET) at Jewish Community
Center, which opened around
1990 with Man In The Glass
Booth, was one of the suspects
. . . "Under suspicion" too was
Joyce Uzelac, Southfield
Cultural Arts theater divi-
sion director . . . Peggy also
opened in JET's First Supper
and another of the actors,
Rick Hudson, was in The
Merchant with Evie Orbach
as JET's artistic director.
The loads-of-fun mystery by
eight actors and actresses
plus Claudia Passalacqua,
owner Frank's beautiful and
sweet wife, a commercial ac-

tress in her own right, was
presented for an almost-filled,
large center room.
Everybody who attended
was part of the festivities .. .
All were taken to Carl's park-
ing lot to "view the body"
where the EMS, or Communi-
ty Medical Service as they
prefer to be called, were
kneeling, trying to revive the
victim who had gasped a final
breath.
Each table worked as a
team . . . David Ryan, with
wife Kathleen, was our detec-
tive . . . Super sleuths Toni
and John Genitti, whose
Genitti's Hole-In-The-Wall in
Northville is well-noted for its
murder mysteries, and my
wife Frieda joined Dave and
Kathleen in guessing wrong.
The ones that were correct
won dinner at Carl's Chop
House plus limousine service
among the gifts for pointing
out the guilty varmint.
People enjoyed the sitdown
dinner of prime rib or broiled
white fish or chicken Sicili-
ano, accompanied by soup,
salad, Carl's relishes, fresh-
baked bread, vegetable, din-
ner wine, chocolate sundae
and coffee, tea or milk . . . $90
per couple included tax and
tip.
Starlite Productions of West
Bloomfield, hired by Frank
and Claudia Passalacqua to
put on the show, is under the
guidance of Cindy Wood,
who'll have her troupe back
at Carl's Chop House again
Dec. 10 for this loads-of-fun
shindig . . . People are already
making their reservations.

Carl's mixed the
food wtih
entertainment.

The legend of Carl's Chop
House continues with still
another dimension.
NO BLACK TIE for this
Michigan Cancer Foundation
shindig by its Circle of
Fellows . . . only bathing suits,
tennis attire or what-have-
you casual garb.
Doreen and Dave Herme-
lin's Bingham Farms home
will be the site of their Fam-
ily Fair for this wonderful
group on July 28, 5:30 p.m. to
9 p.m.
I don't know of too many
organizations that have so
much fun raising money .. .

The necessary moola needed
by Michigan Cancer Founda-
tion is used to continue
research, cancer surveillance
and patient care . . . A lot of
joyous times by very dedi-
cated members with a big
meaning for those MCF mem-
bers . . . Make Cancer Fail.

Golf Course, Lahser and Nine
Mile . . . It starts 7:30 p.m.

d' oeuvres, pastries and coffee
. . . The black-tie optional is
a prelude to the July 17
Southfield Gold Cup Polo
Competition at Duns Scotus
(Southfield versus Tampa
Bay) . . . Proceeds from the
$45 tickets benefit Oakland
County Center for Open
Housing . . . Some of the polo
players will be there plus a
Packard car exhibit.

YOU KNOW a lot of years
have gone by when someone
like Dorothy Decker tells you
her age . . . and of her being
a grandmother.
She used to be little Dotty
Laker, daughter of the late
Jimmy and Toby Laker, and
later on a homemaker with
four little children . . . She
went back to school in 1981
and has changed her life into
another direction.
Thday, Dorothy Decker has
initials like MSW, ACSW,
LMFT and ACC after her
name with oodles of ex-
perience already in clinical
psychology . . . She always did
like to help people . . . and has
parlayed her love into a pro-
fession . . . assisting them in
combating almost everything
that life offers to stand in
their way of happiness.
Dotty is on Middlebelt in
