“In 2001, my parents put an addition on their Cleveland Park home. The Macomb St. house was built in 1914. While the backyard was being dug up, I found this half pint Shoomaker’s whiskey bottle half buried in the ground. Shoomaker’s, which closed at the start of Prohibition, is the birthplace of the Rickey.”
