Veselka is born.
Veselka expanded in 1966, it took over a store front on East Ninth Street and the new additional space was referred to as the "Blue Room", it was a seperate dining room off the small front room, this area was often used by my grandfather/founder as his private meeting room for his cronies as well as of course dining area
