Take your brown bag lunch Thursday for Behringer-Crawford Museum’s program on Beverly Hills fire

The Beverly Hills Supper Club in Southgate was a popular nightclub frequented by such celebrities as Frank Sinatra, Marilyn Monroe, Dean Martin and Rosemary Clooney. The blaze that destroyed the club 40 years ago killing 165 people, was considered one of the worst in U.S. history.

Bob Webster, vice president of the Kenton County Historical Society and author of “The Beverly Hills Supper Club: The Untold Story Behind Kentucky’s Worst Tragedy,” will tie together all the bits and pieces of evidence and delve into the intrigue surrounding the fire.

The lunch and lecture will take place from noon to 1:30 p.m. in the BCM Education Center.

Bring your own brown bag lunch. Drinks and desserts will be provided.

Cost: $3 for BCM members; $10 for future BCM members. Reservations recommended: (859) 491-4003.
