THE GOLDEN LILY, 309 East Garfield Boulevard

The management is Chinese but the clientele is practically all colored. You can have more fun here than in many other places, especially on a Saturday night. The colored orchestra is really keen, the surroundings are colorful, and the colored folks know how to enjoy themselves. You won't feel out of place, since everybody is polite and no rough stuff is allowed. There are several floor shows. The prices are within the means of the average individual. Wentworth 0820.
