To kick off episode 8, we indulge in some super tasty classic Manhattans, one of the world's most famous cocktails. This drink is as potent as it is delicious (as you will hear!), & was invented in 1873--a year that ties directly into Tux’s scandalous tale. Cheers y’all, let’s drink to the health of our livers and/or stem cell research!!
Also covered: Dry snitching, a phony mensch, strangeness, Drag Race, and the evolution of hateful language.
Tux’s tells the story of Grover Cleveland, who was nicknamed “Grover the Good” because he was supposed to be such an honest, principled, & ethical man. We’ll find out though, that his reputation might not stand up against the story of Maria Halpin, the woman who fathered his secret son, and paid dearly for it.
