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.

The answers:

1) City Light, a nightclub and restaurant in Waldo, was the popular venue where Tim Whitmer, David Basse, Ahmed Aladeen and Jano Mossman were the namesake act.

2) Eddy's

3) The Gold Buffet: "Where the superstars dine!"

4) The Bristol Bar & Grill

5) Fanny's

Thanks for playing, everyone!
