THE WASHINGTON COLISEUM TODAY, BUT ON THIS NIGHT 50 YEARS AGO, WOW
It's a big day in Washington today, the 50th anniversary of the Beatles performing their first U.S. areana concert. Sometimes when people hear this for the first time they scratch their heads. "Washington? Why Washington?" It's because we're the capital and we had this great arena, the Washington Coliseum. I wrote about that day for my New York Social Diary column today. Please check it out. The experience was such a delirious diversion only a few months after JFK's assassination.
