Meet The Last Living Capone At Hi-Time This Thursday

What does Templeton Rye have to do with Al Capone? Rumor has it that it was not only his libation of choice, but he was buried with a bottle of "The Good Stuff". You don't have to take our word for it, as Deirdre Marie Capone makes an appearance at Hi-Time Wine Cellars to promote her book, Uncle Al Capone. You can be gangster by association!

As we thumbed through the chapters, we didn't expect it to include recipes. One of them, Mob Cookies, was called such because, as Deirdre put it, "When my grandmother Theresa baked them and Al took them to his headquarters, all the boys raved about how much they loved them."

You'll have to get the book to see if the recipe is up to your high standards, but if they were good enough for the Mob, how could they not?

Deirdre's story covers details regarding the St. Valentine's Day Massacre, Uncle Al's stay in Alcatraz and even his idea to purchase the Chicago Cubs. We'll be having a cocktail with Ms. Capone before her 5 p.m. appearance, so if you have any burning questions, offer them in the comments and we'll see what we can do.
