Dry with a Twist: A Liquid Lesson in How Prohibition Changed America

Monday, August 18 from 6:30pm to 8:30pm
The Exhibition Room at Roxanne’s Cocktail Lounge (1115 E Wardlow Rd, Long Beach CA)
$40 in advance, $35 for members of SoFAB/MOTAC and the USBG

The Exhibition Room at Roxanne’s Cocktail Lounge & Latin Grill, Long Beach’s “hidden speakeasy,” hosts the next edition of Touring the Cocktail: MOTAC Los Angeles, a liquid lesson in how Prohibition changed America. Come out for an evening of culture and cocktails, costumes and music! Dress as a flapper, bootlegger, moonshiner, or temperance crusader (no hatchets please, ladies). There will be prizes for the best costume, giveaways, and more!

Historian Richard Foss, author of “Rum: A Global History,” transports participants to a world of temperance terrorists and flappers, moonshiners and smugglers, and ordinary citizens who just wanted a drink and would get it by any means necessary. Drinkmaster David Valiante executes a menu of five period cocktails, illustrating the ways in which America’s palate for drinks has changed. A light dinner of savory specialties from Roxanne’s Latin Grill is included in the price of admission.
