Today I stayed in the house all day with a rotten head cold. But I hate to skip my new place of the day. So I’m looking back to an old place and calling it good. This photo is of the Balinese Room in Galveston, Texas. The building had a colorful history of gambling and being a speakeasy. The website devoted to the building says ” Headliners (at the property) included Frank Sinatra, Bob Hope, Groucho Marx, Jack Benny, George Burns and Gracie Allen, Duke Ellington, Mel Torme, Jayne Mansfield and Gene Autry.” In September 2008, Hurricane Ike destroyed the building.
