Go Go’ers, have you been busily refining your recipe for bathtub gin in anticipation of  Boardwalk Empire: Terence Winter (and Martin Scorsese’s pilot) paean to Prohibition and its profiteers?

No need!  Thanks to HBO and Canadian Club, you can toast the booze-fueled bloodbath that was the Noble Experiment (and the much-anticipated series that celebrates it) for free at three of Ms. Go Go’s fave speakeasies: the Varnish and the Edison in DTLA and R Bar in K-town.  (Shhh…. Link to the oh-so-secret password and louche lounge addresses after the break.)  One complimentary Canadian Club cocktail per patron, you lushes, so don’t plan on being a hooch hog.

Composer/bandleader Hoagy Carmichael (no stranger to Jazz Era speakeasies) described Prohibition as “a bang of…booze,…bare legs, jangled morals and wild weekends.”

You’ve always loved a good party.
