Translation please: "a girl from the Copa kicking squad was given the palm at a 10th Street bar."

Copa = Copacabana (at one time, the hottest nightclub in NYC)
kicking squad = chorus line (think Rockettes)
given the palm = won a prize/award (think Palme d'Or)

@Phideaux: in fact, it was the hottest spot north of Havana.
