Episode Summary

EDIT
When Congress made liquor illegal in 1920, ordinary citizens who just wanted a drink had to become criminals to get one. The law intended to shut down legal drinking establishments produced a doubling in the number of underground world speakeasies. Kelly revisits the golden era of saloon culture at Bill's Gay Nineties with an 1880s tasty and highly flammable cocktail. Included is a look at the City's queen of speakeasies: America's first female master of ceremonies, the legendary Texas Guinan. Finally Kelly takes a trip uptown to Harlem to a speakeasy that's still operating where it was on West 133rd when it was called Swing Street.moreless
