Last Night: A Prohibition-Style Party
Thursday, March 26, 6-8PM | $55 members, $60 non-members
Age 21+

Across the nation, one hundred years ago, Americans prepared for the beginning of the era of Prohibition by having one last drink. The dry years that were to follow were filled with bootleggers, booze runners, and clandestine gatherings. 

Join us at Speakeasy 518 for a night of light refreshments, cash bar, expert guidance on crafting your own Prohibition-style cocktails, and an informal discussion of Albany's unique relationship to infamous gangster Legs Diamond.

Period attire is encouraged!

Space is limited and reservations are required. RSVP online or call Ellie at (518) 463-4478 ext. 402.
