But, since it was established in , the most absolutely, utterly, excruciatingly exclusive club in Chicago has been the Casino, and I can think of nothing short of a major earthquake to render it otherwise. For those of you who have not crossed the Casino's decorous if not terribly decorative threshold, the Casino occupies what amounts to a one-story little black and green building at E. I'm told only are invited to the December Ball dinner, and another are allowed in later to join in the dancing. For the best measure of which is which, you need only pick up a slim little yellow book that says, "The Casino, Members and By-Laws. They needed the entire block because they planned to erect an office tower and a residential one on the space. Falling into place The Hancock folks were certainly decent about it all, though-going to the trouble of pumping 44, gallons of liquid grout into the soil under the Casino to solidify its base and keep teacups from rattling while their skyscraper was under construction. Still, a large piece of machinery fell from the Hancock's girders during the construction, hitting the Casino's roof, and the area was bombarded by falling hammers, bolts and at least one bucket, though no one was injured. Scott Fitzgerald described in "The Great Gatsby" as "the rich being rich together. But people have always been trying to kill it, and what's killing it most nowadays seems to be the "socialite. In the mids, the Hancock people decided to put up a major development on the block fronting Michigan between Delaware Place and Chestnut Street. It is unmarked and, passing by it, you might think it maybe a pricey funeral home or the pied-a-terre of some wealthy, eccentric and extremely private person. One woman I know of, conned out of her fortune by a rascally husband, was taken regularly to lunch at the Casino and other places by friends who knew it was the only way the poor thing would get anything to eat. I do from time to time visit it as a guest, but am careful to count the times. If Chicago had as many street cleaners as it does socialities, it would be a much tidier place. A much beloved current member of the Casino reportedly is making plans for a party to be held in her honor there after her demise. Not simply "the rich," but "Society"-and Society includes many who, though belonging to the Truly Elite, are quite poor. They weren't even given the courtesy of a scornful reply. But despite their relentless attempts to blur the distinction, there is a difference between socialites and Society. Most of the time-when chunks of ice aren't falling through the roof-the place is about the quietest in the city. Its much marbled, pastel-colored, classic and great Art Deco interior is perhaps the loveliest and certainly most tasteful space in town-and I don't think has been more than dusted since Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney would have loved it-though the club members probably would not have loved her bohemian ways. The initial raison d'etre of the Casino was to provide an oasis for Lake Foresters who, after a hard day shopping, tea dancing or captaining industry, just couldn't bear to drive or train all the way back to the North Shore to change into evening finery for nocturnal gavottes in the city. Mostly, they run to what F. Deprived of space for two buildings, the Hancock Center project developers were compelled to stick the residential tower on top of the office one, producing what was-for a time-the world's tallest building. You can bet your booties that sort of thing never happened again. The most powerful club in town-its membership list fairly creaking with weighties and mighties-is of course the Chicago Club, which a century ago was able to get the federal government to rush out and put up Ft. The acoustics are such that you can overhear even the most decorous lunch conversation-though some aren't decorous at all. The Hancock folks were certainly decent about it all, though-going to the trouble of pumping 44, gallons of liquid grout into the soil under the Casino to solidify its base and keep teacups from rattling while their skyscraper was under construction. As one very social lady of my acquaintance put it: "The Casino was founded by the elite for the elite, and they're still using it. I recall one in which a very grande dame kept booming on about how terrible the food was, how insufferably slow the service was, etc. Chicago is a city full of clubs. It could scarcely function without them. In the days before ethnic diversity, one prominent and now deceased Jewish society lady who was not a Casino member was so thrilled by a party thrown in her honor at the club that she had prominent mention of it made in her prepared obituary. Like the tennis Casino in Newport, R. The social amusements at the Casino run to lunching, dining, napping sometimes while lunching and dining , gossiping and the occasional dancing. Winterbotham died, the Hancock's letter was found buried in a drawer of her desk-so far beneath contempt she didn't bother answering it. There's a dining room, a lounge, a ballroom and not much else. But the Casino is more than a high-toned soup kitchen for the temporarily strapped. Not only is the invitation list a carefully held secret; the membership of the committee that draws up the list is kept secret. If they did, I think they would say something like: "No person may join the Club who is not already a member. In the middle of one horrid night, a huge chunk of ice broke off the Hancock and crashed through the Casino's roof into gasp the ballroom! Years later, after Mrs. How does one become a member? It is not, as its name could suggest, some racy gambling den unless you consider teatime bridge as racy, and I think there are some Casino Club members who actually do , full of rakehells, mountebanks and fallen or falling ladies. All others, including that great mob of Chicago "socialities," can likely be found that night holed up at home with the lights out, lest it be discovered where they aren't. Sheridan just so there would be troops on hand to put down labor riots and other untoward disturbances. A Non-Member may be invited to attend a party in the Club of 25 persons or more, irrespective of having used the privilege for that month. Some of the simply loveliest wedding receptions in town are held at the Casino. In Chicago, at least, there will always be Society, because, don't you know, there will always be The Casino club. As you might gather from reading all the social life magazines that now abound in the area I think there's even one dealing with doings in Glenview, which I never realized had doings , the term "Chicago socialite" is tossed around so loosely you'd think the title was available for purchase at Wal-Mart or bus station vending machines. All the while, waiters kept shuffling about her table paying no attention whatsoever.{/INSERTKEYS}{/PARAGRAPH} There are debs parties, too-but only the most select, and sedate. The members were not amused. Alas, the standard for admission to the club is much high for non-members than for those people merely allowed to rent the club for parties. Originally, the Casino was in a pink and white gads building at E. Delaware Pl. If you don't think so, just ask that nice little insurance company that built the John Hancock Center next door to the Casino but more about that later. {PARAGRAPH}{INSERTKEYS}There are those who think Society is dead, but they are fools. But, then as now, a significant section of the block was taken up by the Casino. Though the Casino does have a small quota of non-resident members, I-now a Virginian-am not one of them. John Winterbotham asking to negotiate the purchase of the club property. Consider the hired hall luncheon being thrown this month by non-member Sugar Rautbord for non-member and visiting author Dominick Dunne. The bylaws do not say. Once, when I was addressing a luncheon gathering there, I remarked how much the pillared ballroom reminded me of a Parisian bal musette or dance hall. Happily, the scoundrel died before he could divorce her and remarry as was presumed to be his plan , and she got all her money back. Seemingly anyone with the price of rental evening wear, an invite to a charity dinner and a news or magazine photographer pal or two can get himself or herself labeled "socialite" in the public print. Probably the most excitement attendant to the Casino occurs, not on the club premises, but at mailboxes all over the Chicago area when the invitations are sent out for the Casino's annual December Ball-held the first Friday of that month and universally considered the most exclusive and most prestigious event on the Chicago social calendar. The Hancock people wrote to longtime club president Mrs. Club employees discovering the damage in the morning were said to be "aghast.
