A nostalgic page for people who remember "The Hideaway" in Darien to tell stories and re-connect.
[06/04/16] I remember my first time there. My mother wanted to be nosy and check out what they were doing up there, they had heard rumors about it opening. Of course, seeing how she didn't drive, I had to take her. It was a Saturday afternoon, we walked up to the door to get a peek and as we walked away, we were called back by "Chief" to come in and have a drink. So Chief, Rita, and I sat there having a few, while they were installing this kick-ass sound system, which was a Seeburg jukebox that played 45s. The guy was adjusting the volume of the speakers, and we must have heard "Reunited" by Peaches and Herb about 50 times! At that point it really didn't matter, Chief was a great host and we didn't notice it anymore.
