Acre 121 celebrating DC Repeal Day, anniversary of the end of Prohibition in DC, this weekend

February 28 is the anniversary of our fair city ending Prohibition of alcohol, back in 1934. Sadly, DC being not a state, still had Prohibition after the 21st Amendment passed. But in 1934, alcohol was back in the District.

And to celebrate that auspicious day, Acre 121 is having some events all weekend!

They'll have:
 Prohibition cocktails, local brews and local music. Specials kick off on Saturday at 3pm and run until closeon Sunday, including $9 Sazeracs and Gin Rickeys, and $5 DC Brau Corruption cans and Denizens draft. Saturday night will feature a free show from local band Smoke N' Mangos, from Poolesville, Maryland. Here's a Facebook Event for the weekend:
Sounds like fun. They're on Irving Street just west of 14th.
