From 9/8-9/20 You will be attending the Downton Abbey Sponsored: Drinking and History Tour!! Trivia, prizes, themed drinks and more! Roaring 20’s costumes welcome :) You will be guided by myself or one of my well trained colleagues. Walk with us as we retrace the immigrant progress toward the American Dream during Prohibition and in parallel to Downton Abbey. As masters of the art of storytelling, we’ll guide you into one of New York's last-standing champagne speakeasies where we'll toast to a prohibition cocktail as we tell the tale of the period’s most notorious gangsters and infamous bootleggers. At our second location, we’ll explore the catalysts behind Prohibition and focus on the women of the Gilded Age, and the movement that gave rise to an oil king while sipping cocktails taken straight from the movie. To round off our journey together, we’ll drink and discuss the demise of Prohibition and its relevance today. *1 complimentary sample drink provided. *purchase necessary: please expect beer from $8-10 and wine/cocktails from $12-18 *we do not accept late arrivals due to the nature of the tour.
We are New York: We are Norwegian, Irish, Scottish, English, Nigerian, Australian, Asian, ballerinas, musicians award winning Broadway actors and voice over artists. We are a lethal combo for master storytellers of immigration. Our passions have made us the most sought-after licensed guides in New York.
