Cap'n's Cabaret #17: Stompin' on the Boardwalk!

Atlantic City!  Crown Jewel of the Jersey Shore!  A place of class, oppulence, and sophistication paired with bohemian revelry and libertine attitudes.  Here's where New…

Cap'n's Cabaret #15: A Christmas Clipper Cabaret!! (Double Cocktails!)

'Twas a high flyin' Christmas and up in the sky,

A sleek Pan Am Clipper is roaring on by!

An Empire C-class is boarding up at the quay,

And Saint Nick's got a ticket, 'cause that sleigh is passe!


This is your Cap'n speaking. Ahoy and all aboard for a special non-stop cabaret…

Cap'n's Cabaret #13: Casablanca Casbah

Of all the Gin Joints in all the countries of all the world, you walked into mine. Here...Casablanca, French Morocco, paradise lost.

Paris has fallen, and that hardly amounts to a hill of beans in this crazy world. A man's got to do what a man's got to do...and for me, that's keep this joint runnin' and keep my own neck out…

Cap'n's Cabaret #12: C'est la Vie...

Au revoir, Paris, it was grand. The lights, the wine, the food, the music...but alas, all things must end. And with panzers rolling through the Ardennes there is but little time to make our retreat to sunnier climes. But first, one last toast to the France that was...


We kick back now on a streetside cafe in Nice with a cocktail and the sorrowful music of the great Edith…

Cap'n's Cabaret #11: Paris Chéri!

Bienvenue, my friends, and welcome to gay Paris, city of lights, glamor, and sensuality!  Fashionably late (those Berlin nights really fly by, don't they?), but the Cabaret is back. And this time Bohemian sophistication and savage sensuality are on the menu as we explore the glory and abandon of Paris, partying like the world may end, for dark clouds gather in the east and all of the nation is up in arms for fear of another Great War.…

Cap'n's Cabaret #10: Wild, Wonderful Weimar!

Wilkommen, Bienvenue, and Welcome, im Cabaret, au Cabaret, to Cabaret, mein freunds!

  And today we are in beautiful Berlin Germany, center of culture for the newborn Republic of Germany! Yes, the Kaiser is gone, and though tensions run deep and pockets run empty, there's no doubt that the nation is thriving scientifically and culturally with a music, dance, and film scene that leaves even Paris in the dust!…

Cap'n's Cabaret #9: Flying Down to Rio (Triple Feature!)

Boas-vindas, and All Aboard for a first class luxury flight to that grandest and most glamourous tropical hot spots, Rio de Janeiro!  And the Cap'n has definitely outdone himself today, because he loves you.

 Yes, sun, sand, and some of the world's most beautiful women await in this great aviation and maritime crossroads! Catch the Clipper, catch a Zeppelin, catch some rays, catch a local…

Cap'n's Cabaret #8: iiViva Habana!!

¡Bienvenidos a Cabaret, mis amigos!  Today we celebrate in the Caribbean capital of fun and frivolity, Havana, Cuba!  Sun, sand, palm trees, sea breeze, music, dance, games of chance, cigars, fun, dames and rum of a thousand shades and flavors!  Save for the extreme poverty of the inner ghettoes (ignore those, my friends) it's Paradise Found!  The ultimate playground for the world's travelling classes!

Cap'n's Cabaret #7: Hooray for Hollywood!

Hollywood! Tinsel Town, the city of glamour and glitz, fantasy and illusion, where dreams come true and any shop girl can be a top girl...if she pleases the tired businessman. Fame and fortune await...at least for those who it doesn't chew up and spit out.

But that's not the fate for us at the Cabaret, my friends! We're gonna be Stars! Mr. Siegel has set us up with a major studio...and we're talking the Silver Screen, folks! Tonight is…

Cap'n's Cabaret #6: Nowheresville, Nevada

Hot, dry, and stranded here at the Cabaret today. Our trip out west to California has been delayed, seeing as we're broken down in a little one-horse nowhere town in the Nevada desert called Las Vegas. It's a small little Hillbilly town with pretentions of glamor, a small dirty strip of seedy casinos full of tired dancing girls and rotgut whisky, like some remnant of the Old West. Now this fellow out of New York named Benjamin Siegel says there's real hope for this place, claiming he'll make…

Cap'n's Cabaret #5: Hard Times

Greetin's, y'all. Things they's turned f'r the worse here at the ol' Cabaret. Fleein' west 'bout any which a way we cain here, be it an ol' country road or a box car smellin' a' cow piss. Cain't hardly see the sky, what with the dust storms over Okie. Don't make no diff'rence anywho.

Them juke joints a' Mississippi, they was good an' all, but them ol' boys in the white hoods...well, seems a might o' them is also the ones wearin' the blue down in them woods, iffin' ya' get my drift.…

Cap'n's Cabaret #4: Crossroads

Fashionably late again, it seems, for the Cabaret.

After a hasty retreat from New Orleans (they tollerate a lot in the Diesel-era Crescent City, it seems, but overt race mixing isn't one of them) we've set up for the night in a...rustic juke joint at a crossroads near Rosedale, Mississippi. Here in the Delta, following West African tradition, a crossroads is a place of power, representing change, and so it is the crossroads that makes for tonight's theme, with a blues legend…

Cap'n's Cabaret #3: Big Easy

Bonjour, mon ami, and welcome again to the Cabaret...fashionably late, it seems. The recent raid by G-Men that...postponed the latest afair now behind us, we turn a bit farther south than last time's Manhattan medley. Deep South. To the Crescent City, the Big Easy, the City of New Orleans.

Today we go beyond the frat boy hijinks and tired strippers of the more infamous Bourbon Street and travel back to a more genteel, slower-paced, sophisticated type of debauchery courtesy of ol'…

Cap'n's Cabaret #2: Anything Goes!

In olden days a glimpse of stocking

Was looked on as something shocking

Now Heaven knows...

Anything goes!


Manhattan...that most central and glittering of jewels in the crown of New York City! Opulence, style, class, abandon...

The definition of cosmopolitan!

Even today we associate the island with the glamorous, the eccentric, the fast, the stylish and over-the-top. In the Diesel Era (and the Jazz Age)…

For tonight's fare we present two suprising originals: the lively Gypsy sounds of Django Reinhardt and the indescribable complexity of the Negroni cocktail. What three things can you think of that shouldn't go together, yet do in the most…
