The only true way to spend a night honoring the dark days of Prohibition is by drinking however many beers, glasses of wine or cocktails that you wish because, dammit, you can. However, the evening doesn’t just have to be a brain-cell battle zone. You can actually learn something if you take in an appropriate movie as you imbibe, at 8 p.m. Thursday at the Alamo Drafthouse in Richardson (100 S. Central Expressway). They’re holding “Prohibition Night,” which includes a special screening of director John Hillcoat’s Lawless starring Shia LeBeouf, Tom Hardy and Jason Clarke as the famed Bondurant brothers who ran moonshine through Franklin County, Virginia, in the 1930s. There will also be booze thanks to a wide array of Prohibition-era cocktails, Texas’ own Herman Marshall Whiskey and even good ol’ American moonshine. You’ll have so many booze options you may just wish Prohibition had retroactively been in effect the following morning. Tickets cost $10. Visit drafthouse.com.
