Cleveland's Short Vincent:

The Theatrical Grill and its Notorious Neighbors

By Alan F. Dutka

OUT OF PRINT

While police raided Short Vincent's seedy bars, celebrities like Frank Sinatra, Milton Berle, Jimmy Durante, and Judy Garland gravitated to the legendary Theatrical Grill for dinner or drinks. Perry Como and Dean Martin launched their careers there. Resident bookies, career gangsters, and wide-eyed tourists roamed the infamous street, once the center of Cleveland's bawdy behavior and edgy entertainment. Author Alan Dutka's nostalgic tour and pictorial history of this celebrated Cleveland hotspot paints a vivid portrait of the city most notorious neighborhood and its colorful denizens.
