Hey you, kid, pipe down and listen up would’ya!
This ain’t no backwater juice joint, this is a Gatsby Party, see? You come in here lookin’ like a rag-a-muffin and you’ll get pinched for sure! You’d best get a wiggle on home and come back looking dolled up before we let you in. This here party is the genuine article, a bona fide, rarefied, ossified Roaring 20′s Party.
We’ve got Glenn Crytzer and his Syncopators straight from Tin Pan Alley (the Seattle branch, mind you). They’ll be hittin’ on all sixes until the sun comes up or the johnny-law shuts us down.
We got guys and dolls dressed to the nines, tens, and elevens in there. Why there’s more gams than you could shake a stick at! A fella’d have to be careful lest he get himself spifflicated and handcuffed on a night like tonight.
We got hooch of course, the finest SoCal hooch straight from Mister J. Stout-if-you-please, himself.
What’s that, kid? You say you got no threads? That’s horsefeathers kid! Just pick yourself up a copy of that fashion rag the Windley dame writes for. That gal will find you deals, steals, and a hot set of wheels. She ain’t no dumb dora; she’s the bee’s knees!
Don’t be a flat tire, kid. Get yourself cleaned and preened then come be seened. Then you’ll be on the trolley for sure!
What’s the story? Here’s the skinny:
