|The Legendary Why Not Lounge in Altamonte Springs has closed according to a new posting on the club's Facebook page! I just had taken the picture above earlier this week when I dropped by to pick up a flyer showing their February lineup. A live band playing Disco on the 20th had me intrigued.|
The Why Not? Lounge has been an institution for decades; their Thursday night Ladies Night truly legendary. Currently located in the Howard Johnson's Plaza Hotel, this was originally the Holiday Inn - Altamonte Springs. When I first moved to Florida from Illinois unemployed, this hotel was my job hunting operations base from which I fanned out daily to interviews. Hotel invitations to free happy hours and of course Ladies Nights, all in the Why Not?, are fond memories! Hopefully someone will reopen it!
