1/23: Western Reserve Historical Society Benefit

Posted By on Wed, Jan 20, 2010 at 12:34 PM

These are tough times for many Northeast Ohioans. So the Western Reserve Historical Society, which exists to give perspective on the bad times and the good, has chosen a more affluent era as the theme for its first annual Somewhere in Time fundraiser. Each year it will honor another decade; it starts tonight with the 1920s. Guests are encouraged to come in fashions from the era — there’ll be prizes for the best costumes — and enjoy music, dancing, food and drinks from that period. Wait — drinks? Alcohol was illegal in the ’20s! The event promises a Hanna Back Room requiring a password for entry — just to create that illicit speakeasy atmosphere. No word if it will also include gangsters and a raid by the Feds. The retro merriment takes place at the Western Reserve Historical Society (10825 East Blvd.) at 8 p.m. Tickets are $105 advance, $115 at the door. Call 216.721.5722 ext. 291 or go to the web site to purchase advance tickets. — Anastasia Pantsios
