The latest New York Times Style Magazine, published on Sunday, November 17th, features an article on a road trip that film director Alexander Payne and novelist Kurt Andersen made across Nebraska, their home state. Five Bank Streeters will be pleased to know they had the good sense to stopover in Red Cloud, where they were hosted by our own Jay Yost and Wade Leak. Where did our emissaries Jay and Wade take their guests for dinner? Why the Palace Lounge, of course. Payne and Andersen are pictured at their table beneath the handsome Palace Lounge sign in the dining room.
First Andy Jewell and Janis Stout on the front pages of both the New York Times and the New York Times Book Review, now Jay and Wade in the Style Magazine. Way to go folks! Who's next?
