Sh…It’s a Speakeasy: Party Like It’s 1920!
Southwest Regional branch, Louisville Free Public Library
Free  |  7-9 p.m.
In case you haven’t been to your local library branch recently, there’s more going on than books… or, so we hear. Get in the spirit for a 1920s, Prohibition-era speakeasy party by donning your “swankiest glad rags” — dressy clothes — and  “slip in the side door for casino games, live music, and dance tutorials”… if you know the password (see below). There will also be instruction for do it yourself flapper headbands and a costume contest. Coffee and tea will be available from Heine Brothers’ and, most important, brews from Against the Grain for those 21 and older. To receive the password, go to the website above to register or call 933-0029.
