The Canteen
A take-off on the USO Canteens that served troops during the war. This Canteen, however, was strictly for teenagers. Orchestras entertained the neighborhood teens as they danced. No alcohol was served. Dot's sister writes:

“The neighborhoods started ‘Teen Canteens’, although Englewood never had one. I forget how far away Grand Crossings was. Probably 7000 or 8000 South. They had games, pool tables and a juke box. Pop and snacks were provided. It was a new experience for us and we had a good time.
