Booze News: PROHIBITION is coming!

>> Tuesday, June 14, 2011

Greetings, fellow inebriates,

Today, as I was perusing a local book store, a paperback edition of Last Call: The Rise and Fall of Prohibition by Daniel Okrent caught my eye. As a devotee of alky-related pop culture, I was naturally intrigued--even more so when I read the callout on the cover:


After a bit of digging I discovered that Prohibition is a three-part, five-and-a-half-hour documentary by Ken Burns and Lynn Novick (who worked together previously on The Civil War, Baseball, Jazz, The War, and other projects). It is scheduled to air at a yet unnamed date in the fall. Color me intrigued.

When I know more, you'll know more. In the meantime, here is a sneak preview of the series from PBS:

More info on the upcoming series can also be found here:

Man, the title of this post almost killed me. Too jumpy. Guess I’d better have another drink.

Not sure how I stumbled upon your site but I'm totally digging it. This doc sounds interesting as well.

I like to drink. I like to watch movies. I like to watch movies about drinking. I like to write about the movies I’ve watched, but only if I’ve had a drink first.
