Summary

Take an illustrated tour of America’s stylish and historic mid-century restaurants in this volume of color photographs and vintage ephemera.   Over the years, the softly lit wood-paneled interiors, starched tablecloths, curved booths, tuxedoed captains, and tableside service that once defined continental-style fine dining have given way to more contemporary trends. Yet in American cities large and small, a few historic restaurants have maintained their classic character and old-school ambiance.    With vivid new color photography and fascinating vintage ephemera, Classic Dining celebrates the great mid-century restaurants that continue to thrive in New York, the greater Miami area, New Orleans, Las Vegas, the Chicago area, Los Angeles, and across the United States. This volume also includes a directory of mid-century restaurants across America.
Available since: 10/01/2012.
Print length: 176 pages.

    Tiong Bahru is Singapore’s first public housing estate. Built in the 1930s by the Singapore Improvement Trust (SIT), the original 784 flats, 54 tenements and 33 shops housed over 6,000 people. 
    Its name is uniquely Singaporean— ‘tiong’ is Hokkien for cemetery and ‘bahru’ is Malay for ‘new’—a reference to the presence of a burial ground in the area before the SIT development. 
     
    The neighbourhood was known as a ‘den of beauties’ in its early years, reputedly because the rich housed their mistresses here. Some of the old remains: the characteristic balconies and staircases of the buildings; its neighbourly spirit; its smallness, which means everything is within walking distance. The return of trendy eateries and modish lifestyle stores has also restored somewhat the allure of its early glamour years.

    My hot, sexy cousin, Amelia, had just turned 18 and her mother was pestering her to give her grandkids. Problem was, she had confided in me that she was child-free. And it was really starting to bother her that her mother couldn't accept that.
    
    So, getting an urgent call from my aunt to drop everything and come over immediately, sent chills down my spine...
    
    "I'm going to come right out and say it, Kevin." My Aunt Stella took me into the kitchen and handed me a freshly-brewed cup of coffee.
    
    I took a sip, warily wondering what my aunt was saying. Deep in my heart, I knew it had something to do with Amelia. And her child-free stance. I knew that irked her to no end. I also knew Aunt Stella wasn't the type of woman to cry in her coffee about it.
    
    No, she was a schemer. A do-er. I knew right away - before she even said another word - that this wasn't going to end well. But what the fuck did she need me for?
    
    "I need grandkids, Kev. Bad. You know I'm too old; I can't have anymore - or I would." She gave me a wide smile that sent chills throughout my entire body. "I hate to admit it, but I'm addicted to those cute, chubby babies. And I want another..." She let the thought hang in the air for several, long minutes before continuing.
    
    "Okay, but what does any of this have to do with me?" I felt really bad for my cousin. She was a nice girl, but her mother was a bit psycho.
    
    Her next words told me exactly how much of a psycho she was.
    
    "Because, Kevin." She looked straight into my eyes and smiled. "You're going to be the father."
    
    "The what?" I staggered back, my hands shaking so bad all of a sudden that I nearly spilled the coffee.
    
    "That's right, Kevin. Amelia is drugged up right now, laying on my bed completely naked. She fertile and ready for your seed." She advanced on me, her creepy smile making me sick to my stomach.
    
    "But...but she's my cousin..." I sputtered.
    
    "Come on, Kev. I've seen the way you've looked at her. She's the hottest babe in the neighborhood. And as her mother, I'm giving you full permission to fuck her lights out. It may be your only chance to get in her panties..."
    
    As much as her mother creeped me out, she was absolutely right. Ever since Amelia had turned 18, I'd been fantasizing about her all the time.
    
    "Look how hard you are, Kev. Your favorite girl - your fantasy girl - is laying naked right now on my bed. Go fuck her. Stick your big, fat dick deep inside her fertile pussy and give me a baby..." Aunt Stella grabbed my cock and squeezed.
