I asked the manager about this, remarking, "Surely you aren't limiting your clientele to those in full white-tie evening regalia?" (I wonder what percentage of the population of Lubbock, then or now, owned a white-tie ensemble!) He replied, "Oh no. That's just to keep out the guys in blue jeans. You'd be fine!" I was wearing a ghastly (in hindsight) pink, green and white sports shirt with the constellations on it and knit polyester pants. (Please, God, help me forget how I dressed in the '70s!) It seemed like the oddest devaluation of the term "formal clothing" I have ever encountered!
I don't believe this story and demand pictures
