Toots

Oct 16, 2008
6:30 – 8:30 PM ET
New York

Kristi Jacobson's captivating documentary Toots is a masterful tribute not just to her grandfather—legendary restaurateur Toots Shor—and his eponymous saloon, but to a New York that no longer exists. In post-prohibition Manhattan, Toots Shor's Restaurant was a playground for the city's A-list, a joint where actors, singers, athletes, and the men who wrote about them came together to kick back and guzzle a tumbler (or three) of whiskey. The Paley Center now stands precisely where Toots Shor’s did almost fifty years ago, so there could be no better location for a screening of the film, followed by a discussion with Jacobson and a few of the bar's well-known former patrons.
