pea-shake house
 n.— «There were many times that his father went to the local pea shake house and turned 25 cents into 25 dollars to support a family of nine. This is how he grew up and still today people are using ticket houses to make ends meet. There are no drugs, no alcohol, there is only illegal gambling.» —“Minutes” by City Council Rules and Public Policy Committee IndyGov (Indianapolis, Indiana) Aug. 24, 2004.
