On December 5, 1933, the 21st Amendment repealed the 18th Amendment. This was the first time that an Amendment was repealed and it was for a good reason. The 18th was the one that prohibited the manufacture, sale and transportation of alcoholic beverages. It was a happy day when that sucker was repealed and the end of prohibition was upon us.
Now we're here 80 years later and about to celebrate the end of prohibition once again. One simple question you need to ask yourself is what are you going to do and what are you going to drink to celebrate this occasion?
If I was a betting man, I would say that your best bet is to go hit up one of the Los Angeles bars that is owned by the 1933 Group. You know, it's only fitting since they are named after the year that the 18th Amendment was repealed. but some of my most favorite moments have been in their bars. From Big Foot Lodge to La Cuevita and even Oldfield's Liquor Room. The theme that the bars set are just perfect for the day of celebrating.
And if that wasn't enough, all their bars will be offering a very cheap $1 cocktail made just for Repeal Day between 7pm and 9pm.
So yeah, that's what you can be doing, I know I'll be celebrating it up some because it's a very special day for me
