New Yolk's and Palm ISeach's leading entrepreneuse ut the sound and fury of disco-iheque-ry, Miss Trudo Heller, delivers the "reflectatek" which holds true to its name at The Patio, just across the street from O'Hara's. With the many mirrors, suspended moving glass ornaments and lights producing constantly changing lighting effects throughout the club, Trude Heller's Patio is where the action is on this strip and puts real liveliness into Palm lieach. Notable performers and nightclub artists bestow their latest accomplishments in the musical field and support the dance enthusiasts way, way into the night. A bit of old Italy can be found by a visit to either Maurice's or Nando's Miramar, where excellent Italian cooking is served in a warm, sunny Latin atmosphere. Service In both restaurants is superb. African war drums, heads of a lion, impala, ayrk, Cape water buffalo, and two gazelles, all allegedly captured by the two young owners, help decorate the walls and bar of the Kenya Club, a small but exciting place to stop for a drink. Kxutic drinks are the house specially. The Colony Hotel that plush and wonderfully fine old establishment, a landmark in Palm lieach, invites a more formal evening. Excellent food and a fine orchestra contribute to the nocturnal outing. A sidetrip after dinner, to add to an outing, would be a stop at The Society of the Four Arts.

A highlight of any evening's endeavor would be to catch a scheduled lecture. The transition from Palm Beach to West Palm Beach can be as much fun and as interesting as any scenic tour. Growing numbers of people, with increased leisure and income, are spending more time and money on travel and recreation than ever before. In order to meet this demand, West Palm Beach boasts numerous restaurants and night spots highlighted here. Traveling west, from Palm Beach, we cross one of the three small picturesque bridges which span Lake Worth, into West Palm Beach and Riviera Beach and the city nightlife. Food services here cover a wide variety. Numerous variations are required to meet specific needs, tastes and buying power of the many people who dine away from home. These range from the hasty, food-in-hand type of service of the snack bar or drive-in to the leisurely atmosphe.e of deluxe restaurants and lounges. Polynesian food has enormous appeal because of its flavor and exotic nature and presentation, that is, served in hollowed-out pineapple or coconut shells. For those whose taste yearns for this fare, The Islander Room, in the Seaview Hotel on beautiful Singer Island, the beach portion of Riviera Beach, is the quality example of the Islands in the central Pacific, offering Tahi-tian floor shows and dancing. The new Maori Village, already a landmark, is built right beside U.S. 1, West Palm Beach, with the entrance unmistakably marked by a lush palm jungle, waterfall and flickering torches reflected in a shimmering pool. The picturesque South Sea decor of petrified flora and fauna, as well as fresh plants and flowers, make a visit here a must. Excellently prepared island cuisine served with finesse, a thoroughly absorbing floor show of exotic beauties in native costume, and dancing for those so inclined, all contribute to a great time. Another addition to this taste is Ying Lew's Chinese-Polynesian-Cantonese Restaurant where Occidental food and fragrant rum concoctions highlight the Oriental-Island menu. There are few better places in the city for refined and delicate food of the North Italian school than Mama GUda's. And West Palm Beach also provides an epicurean menu at Bon Solr, which is superb. Both restaurants reward the appetite with seasoned nourishment In refined continental surroundings. However, the epicurean is not limited to exotic food and entertainment. He can point to any direction of the compass while in West Palm Beach and find several dining rooms that are distinctively American.

Another of West Palm Beach's popular fish restaurants, with a fascinating view of Lake Worth, is Hudgins Seafood Restaurant. The ocean renders to the connoisseur a vast choice of toothsome delights which are fastidiously prepared here, and you may select your own lobster from the live lobster pool. Stouffer's, on Flagler Drive, offers a wonderful view of Lake Worth and the Palm Beach skyline.
