MOB Museum celebrates Repeal Day - TONIGHT

Did I ever tell you that I absolutely LOVE the MOB Museum? Well I have lots of reasons to love it but especially because they know how to throw a party. And what better reason to throw a party than to celebrate the repeal of the 18th Amendment! You know that pesky little law outlawing the sale of alcohol that took place way back in 1920. Silly! Well thanks to that amendment bootlegging became the norm and the flapper took the stage. Ahhh the Roaring 20's...

So in celebration of the 79th anniversary of the repeal of the 18th Amendment, the MOB Museum (you know the real one Downtown : ) is having the party of the year. With lots of Booze and Broads to celebrate the day!

The event begins this evening at 6pm till...
