BLACKHAWK RESTAURANT, 139 North Wabash Avenue

If you like to dance between the soup and the entree (which epicures claim is bad practice), we recommend the Blackhawk, at the east end of the bright light area, across the street from Marshall Field's department store. Here is a luxurious dining room where the food and the music are both of high order, and where you may see gay couples and couples not so gay, and have an all-around good time. Coon-Sanders orchestra will tickle your toes if nothing else will. Dancing is from 6:30 P.M. to 1:30 A.M. and there is no cover charge at any time. They serve a $1.50 table d'hote dinner that meets with the approval of most Blackhawk patrons.
