Food Stamp Friday

The Rose Supper Club in Montgomery will start "Food Stamp Friday" theme nights involving food support for needy families.

Club goers who present their “food stamp card” will pay just a $5 cover charge.

Manager Harman Wilson says the night is meant to complement the club's other theme nights, such as Fat Tuesday, Karaoke Wednesday or Thirsty Thursday.

Wilson says patrons will not be able to use their food stamps to buy alcoholic beverages. He says he hopes the novel approach will draw people to the club.

Even some of the Rose Supper Club's employees are opposed to the gimmick saying, “Name this party something else.”

But the promotion could stem from the fact that The Rose Supper Club is on the brink of closure.

After five years of litigation, a local attorney says he may be forced to lock the doors of the popular night club.

That's because club owners will not pay damages to his client who claims he was wrongfully beaten by security guards for stealing a woman's purse.
