The "Blind Tiger Pub". During the era when liquour could only be sold in amounts dictated by state law, an entrepenurial spirit set up a chain of "Blind Tiger" pubs. The pub would sell tickets to a fight between two such animals. When the spectators showed up they would be treated to a "complimentary" (and therefore not "sold") drink. Later, the pub owner would announce that unfortunately there would be no fight, but that tickets for the next day's fight could be bought.
