Yeah, there was a frozen custard place across the street from Deppe's...it was one of those LA or South Florida type buildings where the outside was done in white stucco in the shape of icicles. Very impressive to young kids...even though Deppe's had pistachio ice cream (the first on SI), my brother and I would bug my parents to go across the street to the custard place because of the building's external appearance.
The place across the street on the other side was called the "Fairway Club", they might've have had pokerino in there...never was inside. Back in the archives someone mentioned it became a "roadhouse" that had some entertainers that later became famous. I think someone said Buddy Hackett did a gig there...DAN BLAINE
