When I was a teenager my idea of a big date night was to save up my money and take a girl to La Paree in downtown Birmingham.

It was expensive and had a faded elegance that I found [and hoped my date would] charming.

The food was fine but the marquee, when lighted, made you feel like you were in a big city like New York or Chicago.

La Paree has been shuttered for years but walking by it a few days ago brought back a flood of very pleasant memories.
