Performing Prohibition: A Taste of Temperance & Abandon!

You don’t need the password to get into this speakeasy! To celebrate the opening of the new exhibit “Spirited: Prohibition in America,  the Russell Library is rolling up the rug, laying on a spread, and putting on a big show on Thursday evening, September 7th from 5:30-7:30 p.m. The party features a performance of prohibition era songs and stories by noted beverage historian Elizabeth Pearce, classic cocktail demonstrations by expert mixologist Jerry Slater, and tours of the exhibition.

Rarely seen artifacts and photographs from UGA’s earliest gridiron heroes tell the story of the formative years of UGA’s football program in a new exhibit in the Russell Special Collections Libraries Rotunda.

The Richard B. Russell Building Special Collections Libraries, 300 S. Hull St., is open 8am-5pm Monday through Friday, and 1pm-5pm on Saturdays (closed on all home football game days).  Admission is free and open to the general public.
