Boozy goodness! "Sunny" Jim Rolph was the longest serving mayor of San Francisco and he loved his booze. He served 19 years as mayor of San Francisco all throughout Prohibition, and his last two-and-a-half years as governor of California. During his tenure he remained lax on Prohibition restrictions, and in doing so established SF as the cocktail capital of the United States. We love Sunny Jim!
