    So as I have been celebrating this on my own off and on for years.......but this year Dewers and a few bars are picking up the trend

    my question who is going to forsake the Wed middle of the week and go out and celebrate one of the greatest days in American History

    just don't say that in front of the Tee totaling Prohibition Parties yes there are still 2 that keep trying to place candidates for President

    I rather suspect that one of the brew-pubs here in San Francisco will have a special commemeration. Its called "The 21st Ammendment".

    Excellent idea! I probably won't go out (I'm not much of a bar person) but will drink something.

    Raise a glass to Utah, the 36th state to ratify the amendment, which completed the necessary 2/3 of states approval.

    I love the delicious irony, considering the draconian liquor laws here.lol

    Except Ohio would have put it over the top the same day anyhow. :)

    I shall nevertheless toast Utah that day. Because it is home to such a distinguished member!


    And Utah does get the honor.

    Bourbon and Branch...Presidio Social Club...and many many others.

    Folks,

    Bourbon and Branch, the San Francisco speakeasy, Presidio Social Club and many other SF establishments will be commemorating Repeal Day. I'm actually thinking of having a party at my place...just for vintage folks and Loungers alike. Would anyone be interested in that? I'm going to start another thread...

    FG.

    There's a bar back home called "The Congress". It was renamed in honor of the US Congress after the repeal of Prohibition (not that the 18th made it close down).

    Can't wait to celebrate when I get out of class at 10:30pm. Too bad for work at 8am tomorrow morning. It'll be great when it's on the weekend.

    Cheers
