Celebrate Kansas City Prohibition History

A reminder that this cowtown has a long history of finding its way around the always evolving law of the land . . .

Prohibition project: Affronti's grocery

Another post in a series on the Prohibition era in Kansas City, 1920 to 1933. Posts take the form of encyclopedic entries about surviving buildings and other structures with stories to tell about moonshine, bootlegging, speakeasies, "wets" and "drys," and associated events, activities and personalities.

He sounds like a nice boy. Clearly he would have turned his life around, had it not been for all those cops and prosecutors gunning for him. (The two old ladies he beat up were asking for it.)

Like this KC history. Sometimes we need to remind the idiot conservatives that this city isn't really a part of the bible belt.

Who needs a reminder? Just look around. The only thing further from the bible belt is hell itself. This is Boontown! We all know it.
