The Club

Do you ever watch old TV shows and movies and hear the guys always talking about "the club". They'll says things like...

"I'm having dinner at the club."

"I'm spending the night at the club."

"I'm headed to the club,dear."

Are they talking about a country club? Did country clubs have overnight accommodations back in the day?

It's a social club. There are several downtown in my city that have their own building or part of one. They have dining room and bar for members only. It's a way for businessmen and local politicians to socialize.

It's called the Men's Association and you'd be wise to leave it alone.
