Perhaps as to be expected, Drink:Eat:Play's Speakeasy party provided a night of sophistication reminiscent of an era long past -- specifically that of Sophmore year in college. An hour into the event, which offered unlimited tastings of over 100 different kinds of bourbon, rum, and whiskey, plus cocktails constructed by mixologists from The Edison and The Varnish, laughs became louder, tripping more frequent, and ladies in sparkly flapper dresses decided to abandon their studied 20's era dance moves for something akin to the lambada. Because some of you may not remember the events of last Saturday, we've provided a photographic summary of the night. And to the girl who got on stage and showed her butt: don't worry, we'll keep your secret safe (in our archives).
