Stumbled upon this restaurant that doubles as a Speakeasy in Boston! Though cleverly named after the Prohibition activist who took an ax to alcohol serving establishments, I like to think of it more as an homage to myself :)  Carrie Nation Restaurant Boston

November 25, 1846: Born, Carrie Nation. After her first husband died of alcoholism Carrie became a passionate advocate of Prohibition. She was particularly known for destroying saloons, often with an axe. When President McKinley -- whom she suspected of being a secret drinker -- was assassinated, she said that drinkers "got what they deserved." Her description of herself was "a bulldog running along at the feet of Jesus, barking at what He doesn't like."
