Name that Flyover city — September 24, 2019

Let’s see how you did!

First let’s review the questions:

  1. In this city, it’s illegal for barbers to shave a man’s chest.
  2. This city has a park named after a river worker named Tom Lee.
  3. 90% of the United States’ disco balls are produced in this city every year.

And now the answers!

  1. Omaha, Nebraska—Yes, it’s an old law and one that most Omahan barbers don’t know about. But they do now (and they’re probably thankful for it).
  2. Memphis, TN—In 1925, a river worker named Tom Lee saw the M.E. Norman steamboat capsize and rushed to assist the passengers. He saved 32 passengers from dying.
  3. Louisville, KY—Omega National Products is the Louisville company that has been making disco balls for the last 50 years. Currently, a woman named Yolanda Baker is the only person in the warehouse that make the balls by hand.
