This was served in the famous Baker Hotel in Mineral Wells, TX.
The hotel(the first spa in history) has been closed since 1972. It was the hot spot for the rich and famous. It's guest included: Judy Garland, Clark Gable, Lucille Ball, the Three Stooges, Lyndon Johnson and Lady Bird, Roy Rogers, Lawrence Welk, Will Rogers, Marlene Dietrich, Mary Martin (owned dance studio in the Baker), General Pershing, Dorothy Lamour, Sammy Kaye, Jack Dempsey, Helen Keller, and Ronald Reagan. The hotel is haunted now and is said to house the ghost of Bonnie and Clyde who stayed there often under an assumed name.
