Supper with Lucille

My grandmother Lucille Balfour gave me an old "Supper Menu" from the Ambassador's Cocoanut Grove. It is signed by Johnny Mercer. She is 91 years old and living in Albany, Georgia. She remembers visiting the Ambassador, with her late husband Lionel, very vividly. She said the hotel was amazing in the 30's and 40's. She had a stroke 5 days ago and I'm going through the amazing things she has given me over the years, and I am marveling at her long wonderful life. I hope this picture of the old menu brings back a good memory for someone out there.
