Jack Rose has a big Repeal Day bash scheduled for Friday. No admission fee for a party that includes a "Pappy Hour" with special Pappy Van Winkle pricing, a 1930s menu (both a la carte and prix fixe), rare old whiskeys, burlesque dancers, cigars, bottomless champagne for $20 and more. Dram & Grain will also convert into a speakeasy.
