BOOTLEGGER PARTY! 10422219_739407329440787_6279403666010255105_n
In the 1920s, it was ILLEGAL to buy, sell, or drink ALCOHOL! However, many Americans did it anyway! Speakeasys were secret bars, and bootleggers were people who carried and sold alcohol (sometimes hiding it in their boots). This party celebrates that wild time in American history! Come dressed in 1930s costume! Ages 21 and over only.
