Tavern keepers #general

Paulette Bronstein

Greetings and Happy New Year!

I would appreciate any comments about the fact that there were so many "tavern
keepers" listed in the revision lists. I found many "tavern keepers" in my
grandfather's birth place (Salakas, Lithuania). Why were there so many taverns?
Was alcohol served? Were these restaurants? Who had money to go to such places?
Did our Jewish ancestors frequent these taverns?
