|Jul-11-14|| ||perfidious: <HMM> In Kansas, used to be one could only get 3.2 beer, being a dry state and all. Even today in states such as Kentucky and Mississippi, there are dry counties.|
|Jul-11-14|| ||WannaBe: Did you know:
<Despite being the location of a major operational distillery, Jack Daniel's home county of Moore is a dry county, so the product is not available for consumption at stores or restaurants within the county.>
|Jul-11-14|| ||john barleycorn: <WannaBe> yes, I know. Also about the moonshiner still produced there.|
Did you know that the owner of McSorley Ale pub in New york was not allowed to enter the pub before the 1970's?

It's a college bar now, not really a neighborhood or Irish stronghold, anymore. The New School has a large dormitory four blocks away, and the NYU dorms are within walking distance. The last time I went there, and there was room enough to fart was back in the 80s.|
|Jul-11-14|| ||john barleycorn: < HeMateMe:> I was there in 1994 still have the mug. That was when I heard the story. When womans lib movement set in things changed. The day it was open to women there was a large queue. And the lady passed by them all which caused some noise until she finally said: "That is my pub and I am going to be the first woman to enter"|
