What Is Repeal Day, And How Can You Celebrate It?
Ah, Wall Street. Home of insatiable money-makers, unforgiving protesters, and a handful of Hudson Valley farmers. If ever there was a street that required a specific holiday dedicated to consuming large quantities of alcohol, this would be it.
Repeal Day commemorates the end of Prohibition in 1933—it's the only US holiday to celebrate a law—and falls on the fifth of December. Once a year, Americans can savor how good it feels to drink freely in public. And next Monday, the fine folks at Andaz Wall Street will be throwing a Repeal Day party, complete with free punch and half-off Beefeater cocktails.
As we learned from the Andaz's GM, the hotel has not been able to completely ignore the goings on at Occupy Wall St. So what better way for everyone to come together than a big ol' open bar?
Take a peek at the event's invitation, above, which details the time (8pm–midnight), place (Bar Seven Five) and attractions (live jazz, daning), and mark it down in your calendars now. By the time Monday rolls around, you're going to want to make sure you've left the whole evening free.
