In the mornings, we had Go Go dancers because we knew the late shift at Goodyear would stroll in around 6am. We did this until the late sixties.
One morning the Vice Squad came in under cover. Nobody knew who they where, they just sat there drinking their beers. Apparently, one of the girls showed too much. Of course, in those days, the girls didn’t show anything compared to what you would see today.
Well, the next thing I know, they closed me down. I was closed for 72 days. I got myself a lawyer and had it cut down to 42 days. I took the citation and closed on January first and didn’t reopened until Valentines day, exactly 42 days later. We used that time to do a major remodel by adding a new wing. We really fixed the place up. I even put in a new dance floor. It actually was the start of the new Red’s – the classy Red’s. May have been the best thing that happened to me.
