Knight errant and the hero

Post by Dana » Sun May 21, 2017 12:25 pm

:grinning-cowboy: in knight errant, lucas tells his old friends he does not anything about the game of chess. However, in the hero, when colley brings in the body of the domino kid, lucas and micah are playing chess.

They had actually lost the checker disks,
and were using the chess pieces until Hattie got new ones......

I wonder how long that would take to get? You'd think Hattie would keep them in stock. Not much to do back then, no TV, cells phones, electronic games, heck no electricity! :ponderingcowboy:

Did Hattie have to order from back east?

Hattie must have kept playing cards and poker chips in stock, too.

I wonder if Sweeney ordered the playing cards and the poker chips direct or from Hattie? Where ever direct might be. :dontknow:

I wonder if they had them the same place where he ordered his booze? :sillycowboy: Although unlikely, that would have been convenient.

So where did they order their booze back then?

I remember Miss Kitty ran out of beer in one episode. The whole town was dry. All of Dodge City was suffering from a drought. This could have been the episode, The Well.

Gads, look at the ingredients and names of these whiskey and beers. I suspect many were homemade or brewed locally as a way to make a living. Don't know where Hattie would get playing cards.....North Fork Ebay?? if they ran outta poker chips or checker pieces they could always use 'rock candy' from the store. Hard to play with Mark though.....he always eats the pieces

:cheersbeer:
The Old West
Alcohol
When a town was first founded, the initial saloons were often nothing more than tents or shacks that served homemade whiskey that included such ingredients as "raw alcohol, burnt sugar and chewing tobacco".

Rotgut
To stretch their profits, saloon owners would cut good whiskey with turpentine, ammonia, gunpowder or cayenne. Their custom product was called by names like "Tanglefoot, Forty-Rod, Tarantula Juice, Taos Lightning, Red Eye, and Coffin Varnish." Other offerings included Cactus Wine, made from a mix of tequila and peyote tea, and Mule Skinner, made with whiskey and blackberry liquor. A saloon might also be known as a "watering trough, bughouse, shebang, cantina, grogshop, and gin mill".

As towns grew, saloons were often elaborately decorated, featured Bohemian stemware, and oil paintings were hung from the wall. The hard liquor was improved, often featuring whiskey imported from the eastern United States and Europe. To avoid rotgut, patrons would request "fancy" mixed drinks. Some of the top ten drinks in 1881 included claret sangarees and champagne flips.

Beer
Beer was often served at room temperature since refrigeration was mostly unavailable. Adolphus Busch introduced refrigeration and pasteurization of beer in 1880 with his Budweiser brand. Some saloons kept the beer in kegs stored on racks inside the saloon. Some saloons made their own beer.
