Second Annual Prohibition Repeal Day Party: Farewell to the 18th Amendment

When: Fri., Dec. 5, 6 p.m. 2014

If we were transported back to the 1920s, we’d probably be bootleggers or at the very least speakeasy-goers. What can we say? We like the hooch. Thankfully, we don’t live when alcohol was prohibited. But we can still celebrate the ratification of the 21st Amendment, which repealed the 18th Amendment and ended prohibition, at Upper King’s Prohibition — natch. River City Dixieland Jazz Band will play New Orleans jazz, while party-goers sip on Prohibition-era cocktails. “Many of these will feature Beam products like Knob Creek, Old Grand-Dad Bonded 100 Proof for example,” says Sara Donahue from Cross & Dot public relations. “One example of a cocktail that will be featured on the menu is the Sazerac, one of the oldest recorded cocktails in history. Some claim it is the oldest.” Specialty hors d’oeuvres will make the rounds to keep guests satiated. Plus, if you’re dressed in 1920s garb, you could get a free pedicab ride. “Beam Suntory is taking over a fleet of Charleston PediCabs for the evening. Anyone dressed in 1920s costume/cocktail attire en route to any of the following bars can receive a free ride to the bar(s). These free rides will be offered between 7-10 p.m.,” says Donahue. The bars are The Whisky Bar at Henry’s, Husk, Burwell’s, Boone’s Bar, Proof, and, of course, Prohibition.
