Bill's in Boardwalk

The great Bill's Gay 90s is vanished and gone, carted away in dumptrucks after 88 years in business, thanks to the landlord handing the classic space over to trendmeister John DeLucie. It's another tragedy, another ruined treasure of the city that we'll only know now in photos and film.

But if you're ready to take a look back, check out the extras on Disk 4, Season 1 of Boardwalk Empire.



On a "Speakeasy Tour," Boardwalk actors Michael Stuhlbarg and Vincent Piazza take viewers into Bill's.







From the downstairs bar to the upstairs bar, they sing the praises of Bill's in its last days on earth.

Any link to seeing this online? I've been Googling it and can't find anything. Amazon streaming doesn't have the extras.
