Repeal Day Ball 2010
The D.C. Craft Bartenders Guild held their third annual Repeal Day Ball on Saturday December 4, celebrating the 77th anniversary of the repeal of Prohibition. Attendees enjoyed cocktails crafted by Washington DC's and the nation's best mixologists, while dancing along to the Prohibition-era sounds of the Red Hot Rhythm Chiefs. The black tie affair was held at the Maison Biltmore in Adams Morgan. Guests took part in the celebration and enjoyed cocktail creations from local favorites like Gina Chersevani, Derek Brown, Tom Brown, Chantal Tseng, Owen Thomson, Dan Searing, and Adam Bernbach, to name a few, along with special guests -- bartending legends Dale DeGroff from New York, John Hogan from Annapolis, and Jeffrey Morgenthaler from Portland, as well as nationally-renowned cocktail historian and writer David Wondrich and Tiki expert Jeff "Beachbum" Berry.
