Did you know that the United States is the only country whose constitution gives citizens the right to drink? That’s right, the 21st Amendment repealed Prohibition on December 5th, 1933. Join me Saturday night for the Golden Lion’s Second Annual Repeal Day Party! Details from the Golden Lion blog, Zeus News:
Celebrate Repeal Day December 5! On December 5, 1933 Prohibition in the United States ended. Join the Golden Lion as we celebrate the passing of the 21st Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, giving citizens the right to once again consume beer, liquor, & wine.
We will be offering $3 gin Martinis & $3 Manhattans, as well as featuring classic cocktails such as the Sidecar, Ward Eight, Presbyterian, and Chicago Cocktail. Enjoy one of these classics or your favorite beverage.
To get into the spirit of the day, we are encouraging customers and staff to dress in the fashion of the time. Break out your best gangster or moll gear and strut your stuff! A $50 Cash Prize will be awarded to the best dressed of the night, with a $25 Gift Certificate going to the runner-up.
