tttc**tt (Eitircn Woman's View MONDAY, MAY 15, 1967 PAGES AT RECIPE SWAP Lunch In Astrodome Ends Festivities By BETTY MILBURN Citizen Woman's Editor 'HOUSTON, TeX.--Texans bill the Astrodome as the eighth wonder of the world.. And I believe them. , ,: Lunch hi the Astrodome was the final event of the Great Southwest Redpe Swap sponsored by General Foods. What an experience! And What a place! ; ^The A s t r o d o m e is the ijrorld's first air-:onditioned, ail-purpose stadium. It is said tc» be the biggest air-condi- tkmed building in the world. Houston's Shamrock Hotel ciuld stand in the middle of tlie field and not. touch the nof, and could be stretched end-to-end three times and not touch ttitwalls. " Sltie permanent: roof of the dome, which has a clear span of M2 feet (twice that of any previous structure) has a maximum height of 208 feet above the playing field. 'The playing field for foot- bll arid baseball Is covered with a beautiful green Astro- t^irf of nylon and other fibers, and 'zipped, together in 14-foot strips. It feels very much like grass, and I'd love to have it in my patio. In the Astrodome, they used 11,000 square feet of it, at $2.45 per square foot. t Five restaurants in' the Astrodome provide food and beverage for as many as persons at one setting. Most prestige possesion in Houston today is a Skybox, on the upper rim of the stadium. With the purchase of a block of seats on the upper rim, you get your own little parlor, complete with bar, ice maker, powder room, tele- Astrodome Club MENU Chilled Strawberry-Rhubarb Soup -with Sour Cream Garnish Oven-Barbecued Beef with Open Pit Tiny Whole Potatoes ' Birds Eye Deluxe Whole Green Beans with Lemon Coffee Cup Souffle with Cool Whip Topping vision (so you can really see what's happening way down there on the field, or so you can watch something else if you" don't happen to care for baseball), and a white-gloved butler to serve food from a special catering.kitchen. A l s q with your skybox comes membership in the Skydome Club, a replica of a Japanese steak house, with food prepared by colorfully garbed Japanese girls right at your table. You and your guests sit on high gold stools around the table, the center of which is the grill for cooking Oriental delicacies. As the food is ready, you reach out with y o u r own engraved gold spatula and pull bits to the marble surface in front of you, and eat right from the table. The Astrodome Club is exclusively for those holding season tickets and is the largest food membership club in the southwest. Three other restaurants, the Trailblazer, the Countdown Cafeteria and the Do- meskeller, provide any sort of food you want -- from a hot dog to a five-course dinner. . Everything in the Astrodome, is coldr-keyed, which gives a marvelous big bright Warwick Hotel MENU Avocado Kauai Riz Frontiere Birds Eye Deluxe Broccoli, Polonaise German Chocolate Mousse in Meringue Shell effect. Your parking chit, your ticket, the ramp you use, the seats you sit in, and the railing you lean against are all a given color, depending upon the price of your ticket. So it's really quite easy to find your way around. After touring the Astrodome, and peeking into the Skydome Club (which operates only on game days), we. dined in the Astrodome Club. Lunch in the Astrodome was a notable meal, as was lunch at the Warwick Hotel the proceeding day. Here are some of the recipes which Astrodome executive chef James C. Volpe and Warwick food and beverage man- a g e r H a n s Schulenegger shared with us. : "Try Just A Sample* .Hans Schlunnegger, food and beverage manager of /trie Warwick in Houston, ^serves frroccoli to Peggy Kohl, General Foods Consumer Information Services t Manager as Betty Milburn, Citizen Women's Editor, looks on.

But what can you do when you're decorating a room to help it have that friendly atmosphere? Here are some ideas. The seating pieces -- sofa and chairs -- should be arranged or grouped to Invite relaxed conversation. Make sure your room is not too drab. Add a little color hcte and there and make it cheerful. Little things such as colorful and serviceable ash trays are a help. Make sure your lamps furnish proper lighting aside from being decorative. Shop for chairs that look Inviting to sit in. Make sure you have some coffee and other tables that don't look too frail and unusable. Make sure there are table tops or other surfaces which can be used by guests without|fear of causingdamage. It's an old custom to say "Make yourself at home" when your friends visit you, and if your home is decorated in a "friendly" way, you will help create that magic friendly atmosphere. .
