A lot’s changed since the first Playboy Club opened in 1960 in downtown Chicago. We’ve fought wars, landed on the moon, developed an Internet addiction and seen our first black president take office. The iconic Bunnies have changed, too. They’ve donned bow ties, taken to ski slopes, learned to deal blackjack and perfected a move known as the “Bunny dip.”
