Event: Repeal Day celebration 
On December 5, 1933, Utah became the final state to ratify the Constitutional Amendment that made God's gift to man--Ben Franklin said beer "is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy"--legal once again in these United States. While this particular anniversary is not particularly special, the D.C. Craft Bartenders Guild is right in celebrating it as if it were. After all, freedom commands its own celebration every time a person of legal drinking age puts stein to lips. That said, the price for this particular ball is not free, and will run you between $100 and $150 for admission. Steep, yes, but that sum gets you unlimited cocktails by some of the country's best mixologists (bar tenders-cum-scientists, for the uninitiated), including D.C.'s own Gina Cherservani, of PS 7 Restaurant, Chantal Tseng, of the Tabard Inn, and Owen Thomson, of Think Food Group. Dec. 3 at Halcyon House, 3400 Prospect St. NW. Phone: 202-338-3295. Web: http://repealdayball.eventbrite.com/
