Ruby...invested a substantial amount in the club, which Mrs. Grant described as 'too nice a club for that part of town.' Ruby changed the Singapore's name to the SILVER SPUR CLUB. It was operated primarily as a dancehall, serving beer to its patrons...Ruby experienced substantial financial reversals in 1952." On November 22, 1963, President Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas.
