Relive the past on this exciting three-hour guided walking tour during which your guide will help make the past come alive. In 1920, the United States enacted the 18th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, banning liquor production, public consumption and the selling of any alcoholic products. This catapulted the criminal world and helped the mob monopolize and grow their illegal business of alcohol production. Some of the most vicious gangsters gained fortune and fame. Illegal bars known as speakeasies opened all over the country and served bootleg liquor to the thirsty public. As Al Capone said, “All I do is supply a public demand.” You’ll start your tour at Petrosino Square and walk in the footsteps of the gangsters and visit some of the watering holes that served illegal liquor during Prohibition. At each of the three to four stops you can (legally) sip a craft cocktail, beer or wine or even a shot available for purchase and served by the top bartenders in New York. While sipping on your now “legal” alcoholic beverage you’ll hear stories of the Mafia and how it infiltrated society. By the end of the tour you will be a “wiseguy” about Prohibition and the mob.

Rest assured, the results will be sloppy, silly and occasionally iambic as the night devolves into inevitable debauchery.

Randolph grew up playing sacred steel music — basically gospel played on pedal steel guitar — in the House of God Church in Orange, New Jersey, and began taking his joyous, gospel-infused music out to clubs, backed by family members who shared not only backgrounds, but blood. “The Family Band” Is not just a name meant to evoke connections of togetherness. They are an actual family; the group that supports Randolph anchored by his cousins, bassist Danyel Morgan and drummer Marcus Randolph and his sister, vocalist Lenesha Randolph.
Brooklyn based vibraphonist Tyler Blanton is becoming known as a new and identifiable voice on the instrument. With his distinctly lyrical and nuanced four mallet approach to the vibraphone, he has been praised as “an heir to the swinging and melodically charged throne of post-bop masters such as Gary Burton and Bobby Hutcherson.” A prolific composer, Blanton’s musical endeavors consistently involve top musicians in the New York music scene such as Donny McCaslin, Nate Wood, Ari Hoenig, Drew Gress, and Johnathan Blake, among others. His compositions range from modern and eclectic to soulful and rooted, all the while painting a unified musical identity. See Tyler Blanton Quartet featuring Drew Gress, bass, and Johnathan Blake, drums plus special guest pianist, Jon Cowherd!

Join a pub crawl at the Crossworlds of the World and learn about Prohibition and its effects on world-famous Times Square. In 1910s, Times Square was the new entertainment center of New York. The legitimate theater industry was moving in. Fancy restaurants called lobster palaces were in vogue. Illegal casinos would be opening up. Prostitution would spill north from the Tenderloin district. And then the most dramatic change would occur — Prohibition. On this three-hour pub crawl, see the locations of where New York’s underworld held court during the Great Experiment. Visit a hotel dubbed the Country Club of 42nd Street that closed due to Prohibition. Gain entrance to a speakeasy on the famous Club Row. Drink where the Broadway stars and fans had dined for a generation. Hit a swanky bar located in a famous Art Deco hotel. Step into a famous deli where a visionary gangster funded the vice that made Times Square the epicenter of 1920s New York Jazz Age. All this and more on this boozy pub crawl at the Crossroads of the World.
Prohibition was a unique period of time in American history. Perhaps nowhere in New York City was this more demonstrated than in the pre-dominantly Irish neighborhood of Hell’s Kitchen. On this three-hour pub crawl, we will stop at three bars that were once speakeasies in Hell’s Kitchen for drinks. Having the benefit of being next to the Hudson River, many of the early successful bootleggers in New York City were Hell’s Kitchen residents at some point in their lives either in their formative years or as adults. They would utilize the coming and goings of ships on the Hudson River, called rum runners, to receive illicit alcohol. We will learn about who many of these early bootleggers were, their schemes and the organization they belonged to dedicated to trafficking in the shipped alcohol. We will also learn of the rebels amongst these scofflaws — those independent-minded gangsters who often didn’t play by underworld’s rules and the consequences of their actions. Further, we will see how Prohibition ended and how the gangsters ended—either their lives or their careers as bootleggers.
The title says it all — this is a unique evening of entertainment, even for New York City.
