“We started dancing, and right after we started, it felt like the lights came on for the event to be over,” Elaine says. Gene didn’t want his time with Elaine to end, though. He asked her if she wanted to go out for coffee and dessert at Café Intermezzo. “We talked and talked, and at some point, they actually came and tapped us on the shoulder to say it was closing time,” Gene says. The two were married about a year and a half later. “We’ve been dancing together ever since,” Elaine says.
