Support the independent voice of Dallas and help keep the future of Dallas Observer free.

Rex Banner would have had his hands full at Bolsa last night, as they celebrated the repeal of dryness with a Prohibition Era-themed party.

Bartenders Eddie "Lucky" Campbell and Jason Cosmas, formerly of Neighborhood Services, whipped up cocktails like the "Manhattan Club" (rye, bitters, Orange Curacao and sweet vermouth) and the "Last Ward" (gin, Maraschino, lime and green chartreuse).

Our photographer Kevin Todora brought his picture-taking-device, of course, and was able to grab shots of the signature cocktails of the night. Make the jump and check it out--unless you have to catch a talkie.

Check out more in Kevin Todora's slideshow.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
