Lovers of the 1920 era's music, drinks, dancing, gangsters and clothes will be transported back in time to the Prohibition Era at the Bees Knees Speakeasy at the Harrison Opera House on Saturday, February 14th, 2015.
The 1920's Prohibition Era was fertile ground for organized crime. Gangsters like Al Capone, Vito genovese, Dutch Schultz, Jack "Legs" Diamond, Charles "Lucky" Luciano, John Dillinger, and Bugsy Siegel ran and controlled bootlegging, speakeasys and gambling across the country. Depression era outlaws with names like Bonnie and Clyde, "Baby Face" Nelson, Ma Barker, and "Pretty Boy" Floyd, also became legends, as their deeds include some of the wildest and deadliest stories ever to hit newspaper front pages.
Set during the 1920's, this evening promises to be filled with jazz music, swing and Charleston dancing, great barrel aged drinks being served from the era; bourbon to "bathtub gin", food and silent movies. You will even have a password to get in the door.
Dress in 1920's style; dandies and flappers, gangsters and molls, pearls, smoking jackets, zoot suits, fringed dresses, gloves, ganger hats...be creative. Prizes for best dress 1920's era couple, single male and female.
So get a wiggle on it, put on your glad rags and come to our swanky, juice joint, the Bees Knees have some hooch, eat some grub and swing to the sounds of the Charles Darden Band.
Tickets are $60.00 a couple in advance and $30.00 for single tickets. Food and bourbon sampling is provided with your ticket. Drinks are sold at a cash bar.
