This week on The Speakeasy, Damon interviews Franky Marshall from The Dead Rabbit, an Old New York bar that celebrates the Irish-American tradition. Franky talks about the inequalities faced by female bartenders, and after the break they discuss why simple cocktails often sell much better than innovative cocktails which may be over the top. This program has been sponsored by The International Culinary Center. Today’s music provided by Cookies.
