Behind the name

BEHIND THE NAME

Back in the days of Al capone, and prohibition from 1920-1933. Speak easys ran rampant in the cities. A place to buy Illegal alcohol and party. In addition to Speakeasys, Blind Tigers and Blind PIgs emerged.

Patrons would buy tickets or tokens to see the "Blind Tiger" but really all they were doing was avoiding the cops and drinking illegally. That's why some were called "Blind Pigs" to taunt the law enforcement (pigs).

In Charleston, South Carolina. Vincent Chicco, a cafe owner ran a Blind Tiger in his Basement. But he cleverly designed a coin that just said "good for 5 cents in trade at Chicco's Cafe" but when you turned it over it revealed a picture of a blindfolded tiger. Blind tigers ran rampant throughout South Carolina, because they were so profitable. As soon as one was shut down another would emerge. Illegal drinking establishments ran uncontrollable until prohibitions end in 1933. 

 

 

"PROHIBITION IS BETTER THAN
NO LIQUOR AT ALL."
