Celebrating 80 Years Of Drinking
( Las Vegas, NV ) - It was 80 years ago today that the government said it was once again legal to drink booze.
Young people may find it hard to believe there was such a thing as “Prohibition,” but the stories of illegal drinking from back in the day are legendary, especially when it came to organized crime.
So, to mark the occasion the downtown Las Vegas “Mob Museum” is celebrating.
Starting at 5:30 Thursday evening, the one-time federal court house and Post Office will have a free “toast” featuring none other than former Las Vegas Mayor Oscar Goodman.
There will also be a “speakeasy” party, a “Boss of the Bars” competition and a “Roaring 20s” costume contest.
