sit at tables surrounding the long bar and adjacent fireplace The walls are crowded with photographs of per formers who have graced the stage andthe ceiling is dotted with dollar bills a tradition locals say was started several years ago by a customer with a whim Outside are picnic tables and a sand volleyball court which often doubles as a large sandbox for children Its hard to imagine why the stage at the historic dancehall will soon fall silent but manager Denny See DANCE HeraldZeitung wins TPA awards FROM STAFF REPORTS Arlington HeraldZeitung recently captured several awards including
