Lou Weinstock, the owner of the Skol Room at the Corbin Bowl bowling alley in Tarzana CA, is under fire from locals for a striptease show that takes place in the Skol Room at the bowling alley. Corbin Bowl is located at 19616 Ventura Blvd.
Photograph caption dated April 24, 1964 reads, "Tarzana opponents, Lou Weinstock, owner of the Corbin Bowl's Skol Room, and Mrs. V. E. Steffen, leader of community opposition to his noon-time burlesque shows, sit down to 'talk it over' for newsmen. The 'king' charges 'un-American tactics.' The lady denies boycotting." The debate between Mr. Weinstock and Mrs. V. E. Steffen took place at her residence at 6141 Corbin Ave., Tarzana, CA.
