In this episode we take a trip out to Queens to explore a bar in exile, a tavern of a country no longer there: the Gottscheer Hall in Ridgewood. This is a episode is a standalone “inbetweener”. We will have one more of these inbetweeners next week before moving on to our next series on Old Greenwich Village.  I am joined by my friend Damian in this episode (Thanks Damian!).
