Stanley Street in Winter Plenty Hot

But it ain't summer now! Who remembers leaving their coat at one bar and scurrying shivering, arms folded around our chests, from one bar to another? You'd want to check out the crowds at Studio -- across from Simpson's, or Taureau d'Or on Drummond, or if you felt daring, Truxx or Bud's. Can you picture the skinny boys with their coiffy hairdos chattering away, their breath showing in the cold? No matter. It got plenty hot inside the clubs, especially with all that dancing. One night, after a performance, Shirley MacLaine showed up at Studio, and even sang a number for us on the dance floor. I'll never forget those blue eyes shining in the spotlight.
