On Dec. 5, 1933, Prohibition ended. The 21st Amendment was fully ratified, repealing the 18th Amendment and bringing an end to the era of national prohibition of alcohol in America.
This year, on Dec. 5, celebrate by drinking at the Prohibition Repeal Day Ball at the Fairmount Water Works.
The Diageo Reserve open bar will be stocked with quality spirits at the speakeasy-style party. Enjoy it, as flappers and gangsters in the '20s had to make do with bathtub gin, hooch and other poorly-made alcohol.
Bartenders from a.bar, Ashton Cigar Bar, Cake Life, Charlie was a sinner., The Dandelion, Maison 208, The Ritz Philadelphia and Vesper will be showcasing their talents and creating classic cocktails.
Food will be provided by The Cescaphe Group and there will be a DJ to get everyone on the dance floor.
Prohibition Era attire is encouraged for the party, which runs 7:30 to 11 p.m. Tickets are $30.
