I thought the flagship VIP was on the North Side near 3 Rivers Stadium, maybe not.

Rusty Scupper, Happy Landing, and The Library, all hot spots back in the 80's, when Downtown was jumpin'.

I think it was the 90s. Might have been the 80s.
So, we have met.

I remember that they had an under-21 'sock dance' one night a week...the first place we went to break.

Don't remember that one, but how about the BYM (Brookline Young Men's) Club? I think I still have a couple of their tokens.
