At a birthday party for Mayor Bader, Nucky's attorney has a legal brainstorm that could turn the tide in Nuck's election-rigging case. Facing a local liquor surplus, Jimmy and Mickey head to Philadelphia in search of buyers, while Nucky strikes an unlikely deal to get booze into Atlantic City. Eli frets over the Commodore's ability to lead; Margaret doles out staff bonuses; Chalky is cornered at work and at home; Owen puts his munitions expertise to work; Van Alden's agents target Mickey's warehouse; Richard lets down his guard in the name of art; Gillian recalls her "first time" with the Commodore.

The boxing match being referred to is the Georges Carpentier-Jack Dempsey fight for the heavyweight title was fought on July 2, 1921 at Boyles' Thirty Acres off of Montgomery Street in Jersey City. Wooden bleachers were erected for the outdoor fight which drew a record 91,000 fans, had the first million dollar gate ($1,789,000), and was the first major sporting event broadcast on radio. Mayor Frank Hague used his considerable influence to bring the fight to Jersey City over other venues, Atlantic City and Manhattan's Polo Grounds. See more
While not exactly an anachronism (Vivaldi's Op.10 Concertos were published in 1729 and were known in 1921), his works had fallen in oblivion, and were unknown to general public, except for some experts and musicologists. After the revival of baroque music, the first known recordings of a work by Vivaldi were made in the early 40s -the now infamous "Four Seasons"- and therefore is extremely unlikely that Gillian could dance for the Commodore to the sound of one of Vivaldi's flute concertos.

You can barely move in here.
You've got your friends on the Coast Guard to thank for that three ship's worth of booze: the Nina, the Pinta, and the Canadian Club.
