As an aside to the private club discussion, a city where I used to work had at least two private unlicensed clubs that were only for people of their own ethnic group. One only allowed membership if you were black, the other was only for people from Mexico and their descendants. As far as I know, both are still operating today. One of my friends belonged to the Mexican club through his father. They pay dues to support the building and expenses and alcohol was bought in large quantities from various sources and resold by the drink at a small profit.
