It's called a dinner club card--that gold thing in the picture to the left. It was discovered while unearthing family relics. I had never seen it before. I assume it belonged to my dad. And I assume that tearing each "month tab" off the card after a certain amount of meals is how the card was used. I'm only guessing. But I do know this: back in the day, Gabe's Restaurant was a standard bearer for dining out in Owensboro.
