It was 79 years
ago this past Wednesday that Prohibition was repealed in the United States.
After more than a dry decade of bootlegging, gangsters and booze-related crime,
people could finally go to a bar and enjoy a cocktail legally. Can you imagine
the parties that were thrown the night Prohibition ended? Tonight, Japp's
recreates that celebration with the second annual Get Wet Repeal Day Party Friday.
Get dolled up and
party like it’s 1933 with performances by Rose Room and Cin City Burlesque and
a DJ Havination dance party. Hot bites will be cooking up all night long; use
the speakeasy password “George Remus”
for cocktail specials featuring Canadian
Club. It’ll be just like a scene in Boardwalk
Empire — minus all that murder and stuff.
Want to get
involved in local television and radio? Media Bridges hosts a holiday open
house at their Central Parkway facility from 6-9 p.m. Friday. Learn
about Media Bridges, WVQC and how to create your own media for TV and radio. Go
here for more information.
If your office
holiday party is a drag, skip that shit and head to Newport for Powerhouse
annual shin dig Friday. Enjoy drinks, music and great deals on Powerhouse’s
rockin’ posters — perfect gifts for the music lovers on your shopping list. The
first 50 partiers to arrive will get a freebie holiday print.
Second Saturday time, and this
month features NVISION’s newly expanded space with the opening reception for
artist Nancy Gamon; craft beer tasting contest at Mayday; Chicken Lays an Egg
three-year anniversary; Hopnosis small batch specialty beer bash at The Comet
and much more.
Did reading this
month’s drink column make you want to learn
more about the art of brewing and cupping coffee? Rob Hoos of Nossa Coffee,
Adam Shaw of Deeper Roots Coffee, Alex Stahler of Tazza Mia host a “Coffee
Nerdom” class this Sunday at 1215 Wine Bar & Coffee Lab in OTR. Learn about
specialty coffee, the cupping process and single-brewing methods — and get your
caffeine buzz on. Go here
