Michael Milazzo and brothers-in-law Louis Contile and Vito Frontiera pose in front of their new business at Crystal Pier — the Alibi Club — circa 1952. During World War II, the club was known as La Ronda. In 1956, it became The Stage Door. In the early 1990s, it re-emerged as the Paradise Cove Gift Shop.
