It’s Repeal Day!

960x540

Today marks the 80th anniversary of the repeal of Prohibition.  The 18th Amendment, which banned the manufacture, sale, and transportation of alcohol in and out of the US, was the first to invade Americans’ right to a personal pleasure which lasted for approximately 13 years.  It was estimated that over 30,000 speakeasies existed during this time in New York alone. While some may see Repeal Day as one day in American history, think of it this way: unlike St. Patrick’s Day or Cinco de Mayo, it’s a truly American right to celebrate this day in history .  So go out and celebrate because you have the Constitutional right to do so!
