August 28 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Join us at the Craft Bar of NewVida Preserve located at 6394 NYS Rt.86 (former Paleface Ski Resort) with author Lawrence P. Gooley.

Mr. Gooley, for the first time has a complete look at Prohibition in northern New York: the shootings, killings, wild pursuits, gunplay at levels never seen before or since, corrupt lawmen, scofflaws, stills, Bootleg Kings, border runners, humorous incidents, ingenious smuggling techniques, hundreds of speakeasies, thousands of arrest stories, and more. Free spirits tastings will be offered by small craft distiller, Murray’s Fools Distillery. Program free and open to the public.
