"Famous People who have dined at Mader's"

This is the front of a card that given out at Mader's, a famous Milwaukee restaurant, back in the late 1950s or early 1960s.

Mader's, which is renowned for its German cuisine and has been in operation for more than a century, has welcomed an enviable list of celebrity diners over the decades. The list, according to the restaurant's website, includes U.S. presidents Kennedy, Reagan and Ford, Frank Sinatra, Paul Newman, John Wayne, Cary Grant, Boris Karloff, Howard Cosell, William Shatner, Justin Bieber, and Clark Gable. To name just a few.

And so I wondered what I might find in the moments before I flipped open this old card.

A photo of JFK with some wiener schnitzel?

Cary Grant with a plate of pork shank and sauerkraut in front of him?

Alfred Hitchcock noshing on spätzle?

None of the above.

Here's what was inside...

I don't suppose I could convince anyone that's Audrey Hepburn under the costume?

Oh well. At least it fits in with this week's bunny theme.
