Hop Sing Laundromat is a speakeasy bar a few blocks away in Chinatown. The bartender-in-resident is famed mixologist Toby Maloney. He just won his second James Beard award, this one for his new book, The Bartender’s Manifesto: How to Think, Drink, and Create Cocktails Like a Pro, coauthored by Emma Janzen.

From extreme prices for weekly rentals to $7 ice cream on the shore, families are getting priced out of the Jersey Shore…why is it so expensive? Stockton University’s Michael Busler and WHYY’s Tom Grahsler join us.

We also celebrate World Refugee Day. HIAS Pennsylvania’s Rosalind Holtzman joins us.
