Bootlegger’s Ball

December 8 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

$20 – $30

This is an age 21+ event. Kick off the holiday season by raising a glass to Prohibition Repeal Day. Cut a rug with fellow dancers and a live performance by The Happy Sinners, sip on the bee’s knees of beverages, and take in the wild tales of Washington in the roaring 20s with local historian Steve Edmiston. Dress to the nines for a chance to win the costume contest.
Prohibition is a significant topic in Washington’s history, and we’ll explore fascinating tales of rum-running, speakeasies and more. Explore the galleries while you’re here, too.
Note: ID will be checked at the door.
