WGBH, 1 Guest Street, Brighton MA 02135

6-9pm

 

You're Invited to our Roaring Twentieth Party!

Join us in celebrating our 20th Anniversary.

It'll be a rip ROARING, raging, hootenanny, box social of a good time. Test Lady Luck at a casual blackjack or poker table (there'll be roulette and craps too if you find that the bees knees). And of course, it wouldn't be a true Prohibition party without plenty of local eats, and a sip or two of some giggle water.

Even though we're telling you where to find our speakeasy, you'll need to RSVP for the password to get in.

RSVP HERE!

Gala Tickets: $75.00 (includes "funny money" for casino games, music, a small-plate style dinner, and a drink at our speakeasy)

 

HOW TO FIND THE PARTY.

Head up the street where the A line trolley tracks used to be. Hang a Louie and head down the old cattle path. But don't lollygag too much, you'll want to get there in time to cut a rug.

And did we mention, you can store your Model A in the parking garage next door for FREE?
