Description
In this lively and engaging history, Madelon Powers recreates the daily life of the barroom, exploring what it was like to be a "regular" in the old-time saloon of pre-prohibition industrial America. Through an examination of saloongoers across America, her investigation offers a fascinating look at the rich lore of the barroom -- its many games, stories, songs, free lunch customs, and especially its elaborate system of drinking rituals that have been passed on for decades.
