Public Toast Followed By Cocktail Competition & Roaring ’20s Costume Contest
If a PubClubber ever has a reason to celebrate, it’s Repeal Day.
That’s when Congress finally came to its senses and repealed Prohibition, once again making the possession, sale and consumption legal in the United States. The date is Dec. 5.
And the Mob Museum in Las Vegas is celebrating with a party.
“December 5th we’re gonna party like it’s 1933,” the museum declares on its website.
The event features a public toast with Las Vegas Mayor Carolyn Goodman, former Mayor Oscar B. Goodman and noted attorney author and speaker Dayvid Figler.
This is followed by a Boss of the Bars Cocktail Competition. This involves a competition between downtown Las Vegas bars. Bartenders make Prohibition-era cocktails for a panel of judges. Last year’s winning bar was Atomic Liquors.
There’s also a Roaring 20s Costume Contest.
The events run from 7-10 p.m. It is a ticketed event costing $45.95. It includes entrance to the museum, the Boss of the Bars competition, two free drink tickets, a signature menu by Relish, casino table games, the Roaring 20s costume contest and performances by cabaret dancers and a jazz swing band.
VIP Party tickets are $65.95 and include all aspects of the Repeal Day Party, as well as early access (at 6 p.m.), an open bar, speakeasy atmosphere and 1920s dance lessons. That seems like the better choice, considering the included cocktails.
The Mob Museum is located in downtown Las Vegas by the Fremont Street Experience.
