Sure, Repeal Day isn't a real holiday, but that doesn't stop bars from toasting to mark the end of Prohibition. Here are some spots offering events or specials.
· The Heights:
The Heights is offering five different special cocktails with food pairings all weekend. Drinks include the Clover Club, Blood & Sand, Aviation and other classics. All are priced at $10 (food items are $10 and under).

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.
