In all my years (decades) at Club 33 - there have been only a handful of Celebs - and while business deals may be made over a meal - walking through the park in a Suit - to have lunch there is surreal - I've met one 'business' friend there. I'm not sure how many corporate clients there are - judging from the members only events - I don't think the number is as great as one might think. The early days the club was for the sponsors - like Monsanto - today - not so sure. Corporate membership does not come cheap - and going to the club for lunch if you value your time - it's time burner - between parking, walking, picking up guest tickets - slow going.
General demeanor of guests is largely respectful - there's can always be someone who stands out - not too many places in society where that's precluded. The Dress code changes and enforcement have helped.
my mail box was empty today from club mail....

one more aside - I've been told that Celebs, politicians, rich and famous - can't get in unless they know a member and the member makes the reservation. Many a park tour has been made where a "A" list has requested a meal there and been told it can't happen - that's been said to me by many a manager.
