Publisher's Summary

Every Saturday from November through June in the mid-1700s, a theater in London played host to an elegant steak dinner. There, men gathered around a banquet table and sang songs about beef and England. When a new member joined, they were made to kiss a beef bone. Each attendee wore a blue coat with buttons that read “Beef and Liberty.” This was the Sublime Society of Beefsteaks, or the Beefsteak Club.
