The Quiz: Besides speakeasy, what’s another slang term for illegal Prohibition bars?
Explanation : Because the sale of alcohol was banned, many bars and saloons opened up in secret, known as “speakeasies” (usually high-end joints offering entertainment) or “blind pigs” (think: dive bars). The term “blind pigs” originated with a speakeasy owner in Maine who found an unusual way around selling his alcohol. He sold tickets for patrons to enter a back room to see a blind pig — the tickets just happened to come with a free shot of rum.
Correct Answer: Blind pigs
