Thanks, great articles! Nails down the opening of Aztec, the approx. years of the Parrot Club, and the Swayze connection between the two which I didn’t know about. Odd the article said Parrot Club was razed to make room for the Aztec – weren’t the sites actually caddy-corner to each other at Boardwalk & Sherman?
That is an interesting mention in the article. The only thing I can think of is that the writer didn’t intend the reference to “make room for the new complex” to have a meaning in the physical/geographic sense. Also, the “new complex” could have referred to improvements at the Casino Pier site rather than the new Aztec complex. I’ll have to ask a Swayze family member.
These are great clippings! I love the Aztec; a cool building, truly one of a kind in the ‘Heights!
I am also celebrating 41 years in business this Spring! Go Spring 1971!!
