    "At City Tavern, the framers' unofficial watering hole four blocks from Independence Hall, Washington was the guest of the Light Horse of Philadelphia, a volunteer cavalry corps that had crossed the Delaware with Washington and wintered at Valley Forge. The First Troop, as the unit came to be known, could fight. And boy could they drink.

    From the archives, the republic's founding bar tab:

    - 54 bottles of Madeira wine.

    - 60 bottles of claret.

    - 22 bottles of porter.

    - 12 bottles of beer.

    - 8 bottles of cider and 7 large bowls of punch (both of which were probably alcoholic).

    In all, according to the itemized bill for the evening from the troop's archives, more than 45 gallons of booze were served to "55 gentlemens," who also got dinner, fruit, relishes and olives. The nine musicians and seven waiters ran up their own liquor bill (21 additional bottles of wine) that the troop paid for. There was a line item for cigars and candles and another for the broken wine glasses, decanters and tumblers."
