No Jeans Allowed

I just found this great newspaper advertisement for a disco outside of Cleveland, Ohio where jeans are allowed on Tuesday and Wednesday but not allowed on Friday and Saturday. For an era of decadence and depravity they seemed to have very specific rules about denim.

This ad for Stars Disco appeared in the March 16, 1979 Chronicle Telegram (Elyria, Ohio).
