This Week in 1935, Carl C. Magee joined Benedict Arnold and John Wilkes Booth in the annals of American villainy. The ex-newspaperman invented the “park-o-meter” and proceeded to rake in the hard-earned nickels of Oklahoma City’s befuddled residents. His first victim? A priest! Go cold with rage as you hear the history of Carl’s nefarious machine… then slug down this potent shot to warm yourself right back up:
THE METER WALK, created by Moe Hannouni, bartender at the possibly haunted Skirvin Hotel Bar in Oklahoma City, OK.
In a shot glass pour:
- 1/2 oz. Irish Cream
- 1/2 oz. Goldschlager liqueur
- 1/2 oz. Rumple Mintz
Drink it down quick. Race out in the cold to feed the meter. Suddenly remember it’s the middle of summer. Be tipsy anyway.
