Step back in time…to the era of Prohibition, illegal speakeasies and bathtub gin; of gangsters and silent film stars. Hot Jazz was sweeping the country and hemlines were rising with the heat.

After all, the ’20s were a time when hard-working people were just looking to let loose and have some fun. Tell your friends to grab their zoot suits and flapper dresses, don their gangster hats and pearls and get ready for a rip-roaring celebration ñ 1920ís attire recommended but not required.

Upon entrance to the Expo Speakeasy, all attendees will be asked to give the ìpasswordî to enter the joint. With coppers cracking down on the bootleggin’ be sure you are not followed and get ready to party like it’s 1923.

Rival Chicago Mob Gangsters Dutch Schultz ìThe Dutch Bunchî and Southside Sammy GaBino ìGaBino Gangî are looking for territory in Indiana. They are trying to take over the Expo Speakeasy. They will mingle around the room trying to recruit members to their ìDutch Bunchî or ìGaBino Gang.î You decided who the best mob boss is and who gets voted out of the Speakeasy.

Letís just hope thereís no raid on the place!

The festivities will begin at 6:30 p.m. (remember to give the password: ìLucky Sent Meî) with cocktails and a social hour followed by a world famous Prime Rib dinner from Masters Catering at 7:30 p.m. During dinner you will be entertained by The City Lights Band. There will be a Charleston Dance Contest with prizes. From 10:30 p.m. until 1 a.m. you can dance in the New Year with Steve Zana from Indiana 105.

The night will also be filled with Guys & Dolls that will mingle with you throughout the evening. Also, for a small fee you can have a memorable picture made from Forever Images.

Invite all your friends and family to a Roaring Good Time and remember to tell them ìLucky Sent Me.î

Tickets are $60 per person, which includes prime rib dinner, open bar, live entertainment, dancing and party favors.

The Porter County Expo Center is located at 215 East Division Road in Valparaiso. For more information or to purchase tickets, call the Memorial Opera House Box Office at 219-548-9137, or visit www.mohlive.com.
