Prohibition Repeal Party 

When: Thu., Dec. 5 2019
We weren't alive in December of 1933, but we can only imagine the jubilation felt around the country after the ratification of the 21st Amendment put a stop to Prohibition and ended a 13-year "noble experiment" that criminalized the production, sale and transport of alcohol. From 4 p.m. to midnight today, Prosperity Social Club will commemorate the event with a party that extends into the weekend. The Tremont restaurant and bar will feature Prohibition-era-inspired food and drink specials. The opening night party includes a Hooch Happy Hour that includes $2 off speakeasy drinks. The local blues and jazz act Hollywood Slim will perform from 7 to 9 tonight as well. Themed weekend food specials include creamy chicken a la king served over a fluffy biscuit, a crispy vegetable egg roll with Thai dipping sauce, and city chicken with braised red cabbage and homemade mashed potatoes. Admission is free, but reservations are recommended. Era-inspired costumes — rum runners, teetotalers, movie stars, gumshoes, etc. — are welcomed. (Niesel)
