The Only Thing Prohibited is Being Boring

Looking for a gam-tastic good time? Head to Speakeasy, A 1920s Prohibition Party Birthday Bash. It’s a celebration for Retro Lovely Magazine and Angela Ryan, who will be signing autographs all night. The party is obviously a throwback to a time when drinking was done out of bathtubs and back rooms, but don’t worry, it’ll be way classier. For one, you’ll be treated to burlesque performances by Perle Noire, Marlo Marquise, Lula Houp Garou and Scarlette Switches, while DJs Curse Mackey, Virus and Bill Stanley spin. Admission is $10 for 21 and older or $15 for 21 and younger. Troops, show your dog tags for $5 off. Throw on your fishnets and your sacrilege Sunday and head over to The Church, in the Lizard Lounge, 2424 Swiss Ave. Doors open at 9 p.m. For more information, visit
