Blind Pig – noun. Also called a speakeasy or blind tiger, is a term applied to an exclusive social establishment in the 19th century that sold alcohol unlawfully during prohibition. The exact origin and definition has been lost in saloon folklore but likely was first used in Chicago during the 1870s. One legend held that in Chicago the police raided an illegal barroom marked by a sign with only the letters “A P G”. When a journalist inquired about its ownership an officer answered “A PIG” with its “I” knocked out – hence the term “Blind Pig”. Many years later Blind Pigs would become one of the slang terms for speakeasies of the prohibition era.Origin: 1865-70, Americanism
