From "The Lost Generation"

"It was Saturday night, and Uptown Chicago was at play. In the speakeasies and nightclubs muted trumpets blared jazz music to cover the sounds of laughter and the tinkling of ice in the glasses of 'bootleg hootch' and 'bath tub gin.' Flappers and their sheiks danced the Charleston, the Blackbottom, and other dances that had been created for this, the 'Jazz Age.'
