Was it this snifter of Cognac or did that femme fatale whisper "play it again, Sam" and slip me a note? This deja vu was somewhere between Casablanca and Gotham City. 

I gave the password to the doorman and rode the freight elevator into the abyss and entered the infamous midtown speakeasy, CASINO SAVOY. The band was swinging hard, dancers lindy hopping, burlesque au natural, and bespoke cocktails a force majeure. Dames were breaking hearts and gents dressed to the nines; so I placed all my chips on the table, and rolled the dice... Join us.
