PLACES TO GO AND NOT BE SEEN TOUR
Some of the best gin mills in town are the places no one ever knows about. Some of these watering holes have been catering to workers and residents of old industrial areas that in most cases sadly don't exist any longer. But a few remain to this day. They were places where like minded folks would gather for interaction, communication, and celebration after a long hard shift at the plant. This is a great way to spend a summer evening in the Queen City.

PRIVATE CLUBS AND ETHNIC ENCLAVES TOUR
In the 1920's there seemed to be an explosion of private clubs that were formed throughout the areas ethnic neighborhoods. Is it a coincidence that Prohibition happened around that same time? Hmmmm? Either way, a handful of some of the best retro private clubs you never knew existed, still remain! And we will take you right in and tell you their story. You will love these joints!!
