Growing out of the post from earlier this week about T.V. Dinner, a former high school classmate Annette Saldana (now a successful businessperson–and the force behind The Art & Science of Making Irresistible Requests) got me thinking more about The Stein Club. I think (emphasis on “think”) I set foot in the place, which was opened from the early 1960s to 2000, once. But I know many people that loved hanging out there. Why? I think this 1985 North Dekalb Community Television/Cable 23 show, Club Scene, hosted by Brian Smith, provides a good perspective of why folks loved the place.
