CURRENT FORGOTTEN BUFFALO TOURS
Private Clubs and Covert Ops tour-
For many years in WNY, private social and military clubs were networking hubs for all ethnic groups in every neighborhood. They were the social media of their generations.Way beforeFacebook, people were posting pictures and notices at these places, although back then they used bulletin boards. Some of these clubs were formed in the 1800s and a few still stand to this day. Join us as we travel to other cultures and share some secret code without ever leaving the city or having to go through bootcamp.

We will visit some of the coolest saloons and former speakeasys this side of the Boardwalk Empire. Join us as we tell the tale of bootleggers and bathtub gin and how our proximity to Canada turned our town into a hotbed for hooch.
