my southern brutha swanky
asked me last week if i knew anything about this bar that operated in b-more in the 1940's. check out this swell menu that was on ebay ~ the graphics and the drink selections are particularly great.
based on the location it was probably a nice little stumble for the sailors that it looked like it was marketing to.
the illustrated drinks kill me: virgin's delight... bali buster... siesta... the panama hattie... sailor's delight... cannibal cocktail...
i interwebbed around but found nothing about it. did any of all ya'lls' grandpas drink there? maybe he met your grandma there. i found the above photo [probably not at the beachcomber, but of the era and in this city] at the maryland historical society online photos
. hey sailor!
