Tell me a little about The Cove. That was later. That was a little hotel on Jackson Street. They did have a hotel. I was not down there at the time when The Cove opened. But it had the casino downstairs -- I never did go in it, by the way -- and the hotel upstairs. And also in the middle of Jackson Street was another little hotel -- it's gone now -- called Jackson Hotel. Those were the first two hotels I remember, not counting the Moulin Rouge. Were you and your husband members of the Key Club? No. That was before his time I think. I may have gone in without holding a key.
