She’s almost finished! The flashy, glow-in-the-dark mural of disco dancers going up at Paula and Raiford’s will be done by the end of next week. It’s to be the perfect backdrop to the let-loose vibe that Raiford’s brings out in the best of us.

When I last visited, owner and illustrious performer, Robert Raiford, was napping in a booth nearby the dance floor, and stirred to admire the painting’s progress and show me some of his fabulous costumes, featured nightly at the club.

“She’s doing a great job,” Raiford says. “I liked disco, I stayed with disco. Now it’s 35 years later and we’re still going strong.”
