More Drinking at MORE Party to celebrate the repeal of prohibition
MORE premises at 399 Placerville Drive will be decorated to replicate a 1933 speakeasy and a password will be needed to enter (the password is “Big Toad”).
Party in period style as you travel back in time to December 5th, 1933, the day the 18th amendment forbidding drinking was repealed!
Vintage cars and Costumes are encouraged. There will be poker games and tickets for drawing prizes. For those who choose to dress-up there will also be prizes for the best period costumes and live music provided by Todd Morgan & The Emblems. Todd’s original music takes elements from every faction and every era of American music from 1920’s/30’s Jazz, to 50′s/60′s Rock ‘n’ Roll, to present-day Pop and Rock, and everything in between, creating a familiar, yet fresh and modern sound. Look out – you never know when the Keystone Cop will descend on the premises for a raid! Prepare to see some of our most upstanding citizens thrown in the pokey. You may be called upon to help make bail! All proceeds benefit Mother Lode Rehabilitation Enterprises (MORE) and adults with developmental disabilities in El Dorado County.
Six years ago the wonderful people from Wofford Acres Vineyards, Boeger Winery, David Girard Vineyards and Gold Hill Vineyard created a special Repeal Prohibition event benefitting Mother Lode Rehabilitation Enterprises Inc.
This Repeal Prohibition Celebration commemorates the day, Dec. 5, 1933 when the amendment that prohibited sale of alcoholic beverages was repealed.
This year MORE, 399 Placerville Drive in Placerville, will become a speakeasy for the 2013 event on Thursday. MORE is honored to have been chosen the benefactor of this event according to Susie Davies, MORE executive director.
Guests will party in period style as they travel back in time from 4:30 to 8 p.m.
Event organizers invite celebrants to the 80th anniversary of the day the 18th amendment was repealed.
The four original wineries are still participating — Boeger Winery, David Girard Vineyards, Gold Hill Vineyard & Brewery, and Wofford Acres Vineyards — and will be offering wine tasting as well as soup, bread and appetizers.
Old Hangtown Beer Works will be serving some of its award-winning, handcrafted brews.
To enter the 1933 speakeasy a password will be needed. It will be on the ticket which is $20 each or $10 for a designated driver. Drivers will have the opportunity to win special prizes.
