Matchbook from Wilson's Restaurant and Cocktail Lounge, 1118-20-22 Wilson, circa 1930s. What a swanky looking joint! The below image, captured from Google, shows the address today. It is just to the west of the Wilson Broadway Mall.
It's time for another 1930s cocktail. If you don't have absinthe handy, you can replace with anisette. (Although no longer available in the U.S., you can order absinthe online.)
NICK'S OWN COCKTAIL
