Harlem Whiskey Festival July 11 & 12
Objective is to celebrate Harlem’s rich & historical place in whiskey lore dating back to prohibition. In fact, at Connie’s Inn on 7th Ave & 132nd Street, the standard drink was called a “shorty” because it could fit in your pocket! A four once bottle of whiskey sold for 50 cents to a Dollar. High Whiskey connoisseurs preferred Mexico’s Old 99 made locally or a pre Volstead product called Chicken Cock, from Kentucky.
Location: The Cecil, 210 West 118 Street, Manhattan
