It will be an evening celebrating bootlegging, betting, booze, and the prohibited shenanigans that kept an era roaring with jazz, gin, and freedom! It all goes down at The Franklin Institute Tuesday September 25th from 7-10 pm.
Mix and mingle with guests and learn the science behind the prohibition era.
If you’re not familiar with Science After Hours by now, it’s essentially when the Franklin Institute re-opens at night for the 21 and older crowd. Drinks compliment the theme nights which range from mummies to ghosts to the circus and just about every cool subject you can think of. This month, Science After Hours is exploring the 1920’s bootlegging era including the science behind the ingenious ways bootleggers avoided jail, how they made the moonshine, as well as mischievous activities such as gambling.
Enjoy a cash bar featuring beer and liquor (all totally legal). Attendees are encouraged to dress in 1920’s gear. That’s right fellas break out your three piece Elliot Ness suits and ladies throw on your pearls and flapper dresses for a roaring good time. Tickets are $20 a pop and can be purchased here.
