The Hurricane Nite Club and Lounge on 71st Street was featuring Tommy Strand and The Upper Hand direct from Miami Beach.

The Vienna Lounge on 82nd Street called itself “Ocean City’s Newest Italian-American Restaurant.”

If those same youngsters were in the city, they would be selling lemonade. Children are the same everywhere, they do the same things but sometimes they use different equipment.”
