Carl's velvet cork

This article is interesting. That's all I have to say so far today.

Great excerpt:

"To that end, he and a friend constructed a sophisticated-looking bar that turned out wine-based martinis, old fashioneds, zombies, screwdrivers and the like, ranging from 40 to 75 cents. Draft beer was 35 cents.

When Dutra landed a liquor license, he remodeled and changed the concept to Carl's Steak Chalet, serving a 14-ounce steak for $1.25, fried chicken for $1.75 and a linguica sandwich for $1.25. Those prices included all the trimmings."
