East Side on the Lam: A Prohibition-Themed Trick or Treat for “Something Stronger”
This 20s/30s style night-out “honors” the passing of the 18th amendment 100 years ago and is inspired by Milwaukee’s own prohibition history.
Milwaukee, WI – The East Side will be hosting a prohibition-themed Halloween event within various bars on Friday, October 25th.
This 20s/30s style night-out “honors” the passing of the 18th amendment 100 years ago and is inspired by Milwaukee’s own prohibition history. During prohibition, many breweries in Milwaukee had to switch from providing alcohol to products like carbonated sodas or candy in order to stay in business. To put a 2019 twist on it, each of the East Side’s participating bars will be hosting an adult trick or treat. There will be candy, and if you’re looking for something a bit stronger you may get your hands on some “secret” drink specials.
From 8pm until bar close, party-goers dressed in their best prohibition-era costumes can party like it’s 1920 and go ‘On the Lam’ on the East Side at Von Trier, Landmark Lanes, Crossroads Collective, Shanghai Speakeasy, BaccaNera Enoteca and Winebar, and Izzy Hops Swig and Nosh. Each bar will be offering drink specials from East Side on the Lam’s sponsors Miller Lite and Stolen X Rock and Rye.
In addition, local retailers The Waxwing and Beard MKE will stay open until 9pm and host a “Shopeasy” with surprise discounts and refreshments.
The bars hosting the event will be free to enter and those ages 21 and up will be allowed in.
