Every year there is a holiday conveniently wedged between Thanksgiving and Christmas, and doesn’t require you to hang out with the family.

The AC Hotel Tucson Downtown is raising a toast and taking it back to the 1930’s for Repeal Day from 5 – 7 p.m. on Wednesday, December 5.

85 years ago, Prohibition exited the scene and December 5, 1933 marked the return of craft fermentation and distillation, the art of bartending, and the enjoyment of drinking as a social custom.

The evening will be filled with Prohibition-era cocktails and live jazz music from Gabriel Naim Amor and musician Sean Rogers. If you’re feeling festive and dress like you’re living in the 1930’s, you’ll get half off your first drink.

The event is free and open to the public, but only those 21 years and older can celebrate the 21st Amendment with an alcoholic beverage.
