Heatless Mondays

“Bartenders wearing overcoats, sweaters, and gloves bustled about setting ‘em up for the chilled patrons, who also kept bundled up while they were partaking of the drinks the government had ruled were not to be dispensed.” (Connecting the Windy City, 2nd item)

Pretty cruel to not allow heat in public places, while also not allowing someone to have a stiff drink to ward off the resulting chill.
