The ice-doom is upon us. So I guess you can celebrate the 80th anniversary of the ratification of the 21st Amendment—the one that made alcohol legal again—by cleaning out your liquor cabinet. Or you could brave the elements tonight. Either way, be safe out there.
At the Alamo Drafthouse, there’s a whole Prohibition to-do planned, complete with era-appropriate cocktails, ’30s tunes, a screening of the bootlegger movie Lawless, and a conversation with Matt Bondurant, author of The Wettest County in the World, the book that inspired the film. Bondurant wrote the book about his grandfather and grand-uncles, who ran a massive moonshine operation in the Virginia mountains.
Over at Victor Tangos on Henderson, a special menu of cocktails, which includes a Sazerac and a gin sling, are 80 cents apiece. Repeal Day is my new favorite day, obviously.
At Stanley Korshak’s The Shak, you can help the Dallas Children’s Advocacy Center and save your own feet in the process with a Holiday Flats Fête shopping event. Yosi Samra, the designer responsible for those cute little fold-up flats you see on basically every celebrity running around LA, is recently relocated to Dallas. The evening involves a raffle that benefits the DCAC, cocktails, and appetizers, plus the chance to meet with Samra and admire all his comfy shoes. For every $200 purchase, a child gets a pair of Yosi Samra flats.
