Prohibition Repeal Party 

When: Sat., Dec. 5 2015
On Dec. 5, 1933, president Franklin Delano Roosevelt famously proclaimed, “What the world needs now is a drink.” To mark the occasion, Prosperity Social Club will toast the end of that “noble experiment” with a Prohibition Repeal Party that takes place tonight from 8 to 11. The event includes era-inspired cuisine and live music courtesy of local hero Hollywood Slim. The special drink menu include a French 75 (made with Cognac instead of the traditional gin) and a special, high-flying Gatsby Punch are on the drink menu too. If you whisper the speakeasy code word “gigglejuice” to your server, you can order a $6 champagne cocktail or a Gin Rickey, a drink that was a favorite of writer F. Scott Fitzgerald.” Special food items include old school platters like the Fried White-Bread Bologna Sandwich with Homemade Chips and City Chicken, Mashed Potatoes and Braised Red Cabbage. There’s no cover but patrons are encouraged to don 1930s attire reminiscent of “bootleggers, rumrunners, mobsters, teetotalers, WPA artists, crooners or movie stars.” (Niesel)
