Repeal Day

Today is the 75th anniversary of the repeal of Prohibition.

A shining example of democracy at its finest, the 21st Amendment brought renewed hope to a nation shaken by a devastating financial crisis. Celebrate this important occasion the historically accurate way: by drinking! Try an old-timey gin rickey or Manhattan for extra authenticity.
