Drink Up! It's Repeal Day.



Looking for an excuse to imbibe this Sunday? Look no further. It's time to raise your glass to the State of Utah, the thirty-sixth and deciding state to approve the 21st Amendment abolishing prohibition through the repeal of the Eighteenth Amendment. --- It happened on this day in 1933. That's when the 21 members of Utah's Constitutional Convention unanimously endorsed the 21st Amendment -- and, probably the last time Utah politicians agreed unanimously on anything.  

Among the places hosting Repeal Day bashes today are Gracie's in Salt Lake City and High West Distillery in Park City.
