On December 5, 1933, the 21st Amendment to the U.S Constitution was ratified, repealing the 18th Amendment which prohibited intoxicating liquors in the US. This is truly a holiday near and dear to Crave Local’s heart, and nomad.dinners is celebrating in a way we wish we could! With prohibition-era cocktails created by guest bartenders from around Seattle, live music from the Careless Lovers, Charleston dance lessons, oysters and prohibition-inspired food, you’ll drink and dance the night away in style.
Proceeds will benefit the Fremont Abbey Arts Center, a nonprofit providing arts experiences for people of all ages & incomes since 2005.
- The Careless Lovers performing jazz and swing tunes of the era
- Charleston dance instructor Casey Schneider, Century Ballroom
- Bartender Gregg Holcomb of Knee High Stocking Company
- Bartender Julianne Christie of Serafina
- Bartender Stephen Libbey of terra plata
- Bartender Kyle Lasicka of Tavolata
- Master oyster shucker Kevin Bartlett of Taylor Shellfish Farms
- Chef Tomer Shneor of nomad.dinners
nomad.dinners founder Jody Haynes says she’s been celebrating the “holiday” for 20 years, so we should definitely join her in raising a glass for 2012. The party will be held at the Fremont Abbey Arts Center, 4272 Fremont Ave. N, Seattle, WA 98103.
This is a 21 and over event, with tickets starting at $25 and prizes for best period attire. For more information, email [email protected], call 206-678-5041 or check out http://www.facebook.com/pages/End-of-Prohibition-Party-benefitting-the-Fremont-Abbey-Arts-Center/445686705469102
