Bootleggers' Ball: A 1920s Speakeasy Party - Saturday, May 18th
Saturday, May 18, 2013 from 7:00 PM to 11:30 PM (EDT)
Join us on May 18th for the bee’s knees of a party.
Bootleggers Ball is a celebration of Riverside Avondale’s heyday, the roaring 20s. It is time for all you bearcats and sugar daddies to get dressed up in your flapper dresses and zoot suits and get ready to shimmy the night away!
The 77ds will be dressed in style and playing your favorite tunes so grand you’d think they were on Tin Pan Alley. MOJO#4 will be serving up some delish giggle water with their menu of 1920s era cocktails that includes the sazerac and the old fashioned. A Mafia Menu from Biscottis will be coupled with tastings from two of our neighborhood's newest restaurants, Black Sheep and Salty Fig.
If you don’t know how to shake like a flapper, no worries, we will have someone there to teach you the basics! And don’t be surprised if a card game breaks out for you mobsters who don’t dance.
The silent auction includes some fabulous prizes, including:
- Private Aerial Tour of Riverside Avondale
- A 3-hour Eco-Tour on the St. Johns
- 1-week timeshare during peak leaf changing season at Saphire Lake
- 1-week stay at Grayton Beach, Florida Beach House
- 4-tickets to the TPC 2014
- 4-Day passes to Disney

Want to know the hot spot? Well we don’t want to get pinched for the moonshine so it’s a secret for now… hush hush. Here is a hint: it will definately be in Riverside Avondale. You will get the locale and a secret password for the party the week of the event.
Tickets are just $60 per person or $100 per couple and includes dinner, two cocktail tickets, unlimited beer and wine, dancing lessons and many other antics we've got up our sleeves.
Come join us and cut a rug!
