The Omaha Press Club honored Chancellor Harvey Perlman as the newest “Face on the Barroom Floor” during a Nov. 19 roast and dinner. The event was held at the Press Club, 1620 Dodge St., in Omaha.
Presented by the Omaha Press Club since 1971, the award honors newsmakers who have made an impact on the community.
The actual award is a caricature drawn by artist Jim Horan. The drawings are unveiled during a roast and toast of the award-winner. The caricatures are placed on the Omaha Press Club’s floor to be walked on and admired until being framed and hung on a wall with other drawings of newsmakers.
The “Faces on the Barroom Floor” is an award unique among press clubs nationwide.
