Adult Nights: Speakeasy

Celebrate the roaring 1920s at the Adult Nights: Speakeasy on Friday, February 22. Throw down a few clams for some giggle water and cut a rug to live jazz by Sidecar Social Club. Get the lowdown on Prohibition in NC, test your chemical sense, crack the bootlegger’s code, know your onions with popular ’20s slang and more, featuring a private Member entrance under the Globe. It’s going to be the Cat’s Pajamas!
