Closing the Rainbow Room

NPR's Special Correspondent Susan Stamberg reports on the recent closing of the Rainbow Room in New York City. After 64 years, the gilded, glass-walled supper club that boasted breathtaking views from the 65th floor of the old RCA Building, high above the NBC studios in Rockefeller Center, closed because of a dispute over a new lease. Stamberg visited the Master of Mixology and asked him for some New Year's memories and the recipe for the perfect toast.
