WHAT: The Dry Season, a premier Prohibition speakeasy experience presented by the Henry County Historical Society (HCHS).

WHEN: Saturday, Oct. 19 beginning at 6 p.m.

WHERE: That’s the secret. The event will begin at the Bloomfield Home Museum in Napoleon. Prior to that, a ticket voucher must be bought at Above the Roots, Country Gourmet, Johnson’s Country Shoppe, MKats Antiques, Henry County Chamber of Commerce office or by Venmo to the Henry County Historical Society. That ticket must be presented at the museum between 5:30 and 6:30 p.m. At the Prohibition exhibit, participants will be given a ticket and information as to the location of The Dry Season speakeasy.

COST: Couples are $45 ($40 for HCHS members) or $25 for singles ($20 for HCHS members).

WHY YOU SHOULD GO: The initial voucher gains access to the museum’s exhibits, including the new one on Prohibition in Henry County. Once at the speakeasy, there will be drinking, dancing and eating from 6-10 p.m. Providing entertainment will be The Hungry Five from 7:30-9 p.m. A cash bar will be open at 6, and the entrance ticket comes with one free drink from the Prohibition era. Those attending are encouraged to wear Prohibition-era clothing and prizes will also be given to the best dressed.
