Kansas kicked off the Prohibition movement when the outlawed alcohol in 1881, with Temperance activist Carrie Nation using a hatchet to literally smash the “destroyer of men’s souls.” In bars the saying went, “every nation welcome but Carrie.” From 1920 to ‘33, the consumption and production of alcohol was outlawed federally, leading to hundreds of thousands of underground speakeasies to spring up around the country. Moonshine runs in the south gave birth to the game of NASCAR as we know it today. But thankfully, on Dec. 5, 1933, Prohibition ended. The Left Coast Bartenders Guild’s is celebrating with their annual Repeal Day Party at the historic Don Vicente Inn, nearly 80 years after the official repeal of the law. Some serious cocktails will be mixed from spirit specialists well known for their mixology skills. Plus, Burlesque dancing, live music, and plenty of food from area restaurants add to the festivities. Proceeds go to Because of Ezra, an organization dedicated to serving pediatric cancer patients in the bay area. We can definitely cheers to that too. —Arielle Stevenson
