(Sounds pretty good to me for fifty cents.  I'd even tip a dime...This 1916 WASHINGTON POST cite really did the job.  Here's what I'd posted in the archives:
CLAMS CASINO--John Mariani cites Julius Keller's INNS AND OUTS with creating the "clams casino" in 1917. So how come it sounded new to the NEW YORK TIMES in 1943?

   Whisky glasses remain the small straight little "shot glasses" they always have been.  They may have a deep false bottom, but nothing, of course, so effete as a stem.
   Tom Collins glasses, or glasses for whiskey and soda, are also tall, straight and large.
