The answers to this week’s contest
First, a big round of applause to commenter Jay who correctly answered all five of this week’s Fat City “On With the Show” contest. This contest wasn’t easy, and it stumped some of our shrewdest players.
|Eddy’s was Kansas City’s premiere supper club until 1965|
The question that tripped up most readers was #2:
“Name the downtown supper club — the building was recently torn down — that was one of the hottest destination spots of the 1950s and early 1960s, and featured national performing acts like Steve Lawrence and Eydie Gorme, Anne Meara and Jerry Stiller, The Four Lads, The Four Aces and the Crew Cuts.”
Jim Eddy, son of one of the founding members of the Eddy’s restaurant dynasty, remembers that Anne Meara — of the popular comedy team Stiller and Meara — was pregnant during her 1965 appearance with husband Jerry Stiller at Eddy’s. “That baby, born in November, was Ben Stiller,” says Eddy.
