February 23, 7:00 - 10:00 P.M.
Enter into a world of mobsters,
flappers, family wars and revelry…and don’t forget the backroom
gambling, live music, “Bathtub Gin” and swell eats. It’s all the
glamor and intrigue of the 1920s without the smoking Tommy guns
and sticky blood. The Anything Goes Speakeasy Party will
be erupting at the Johnson-Humrickhouse Museum on Saturday,
February 23, at 7:00 P.M. Think Scarface, The
Untouchables, and Boardwalk Empire—the days of
prohibition, Mafia wars, great cars, and the stories of the rich
and glamorous riding the wave of the Great Depression.
will enter through the backdoor, but only after whispering the
secret password to the bouncer. Once you enter, no real names
will be allowed. Come with an alias or you’ll be given one…with
a family affiliation. 1920s’ attire is encouraged with a
prize going to the best-dressed Sheba and Sheik. What no fedora
or low-waisted dress in your closet? Ritzy, sexy or simply
the cat’s meow works, too. You will be part of the action as
one mob family goads another and every big cheese tests you to
see if you are hard boiled or a pushover, a flat tire or cat’s
meow. You’ll also want to carry a few extra clams—better to pay
off the coppers than spend the night in the slammer.
Rendezvous will be playing throughout the evening, and a small
dance floor will be carved out for those who want to swing.
Compete in the Charleston to win a free drink. Another area
will be set aside for gambling. Chips may be purchased with real
money or Mafia money that is handed out as pay-offs, bribes and
awards throughout the evening. Win enough chips to purchase
raffle tickets for swanky prizes. A cash bar will offer, wine,
beer and cocktails. Don’t forget, this is the time of bathtub
gin and bootleg bourbon, often cloaked in a china teacup.
