Kitschy "natural history museum" meets cafeteria-style restaurant/nightclub with "Team Old School!" Derby days dancers, Joe's Bar regulars, burlesque dancers, hipsters, drinkers, waterfalls, murals,creepy taxidermy animals, and huge trees to create the odd atmosphere- you just have to check out this one of a kind place for yourself. The cafeteria opened in the height of the Great Depression. Clifford Clinton had his restaurant serve millions of meals for free to needy patrons, as well as to paying ones.
