My grandfather told me that prior 1920, for the price of a glass of beer (sometimes only a nickle) many bars and restaurants served free platters of meats, cheeses and breads and you could eat unlimited quantities. Sort of like our "happy hour", but better. I can't vouch for the quality of the meat and cheese, but it satisfied Gramps.
