GANGS OF NEW YORK, Kings County Distillery, and an Altercation on the Streets

On Friday, June 22 we drank bourbon and moonshine from this episode’s whiskey donor, the legendary Kings County Distillery. We talked about the history of NY, politics, and the geography of lower Manhattan.

Plus, an on-premises interview with Colin Spoelman, owner of Kings County Distillery. The movie is Gangs of New York, a part of IFC Center‘s Waverly Midnights: Scorsese series.

Fittingly(?) we nearly got into a fight.
