Between "Boardwalk Empire" and Ken Burns's recent PBS documentary about Prohibition, speakeasies and classic cocktails are all the rage. For a taste of Roaring Twenties glamour, head to the D.C. Craft Bartender Guild's annual Repeal Day Ball at Georgetown's historic Halcyon House. As the Red Hot Rhythm Chiefs perform hot jazz and swing, guests sample cocktails prepared by an all-star lineup of mixologists, both locals and special guests from New York to San Francisco. As you might expect, it's one of the most festive black-tie events of the season. Tickets include all drinks, hors d'oeuvres and a buffet; a VIP pass allows for admission an hour earlier for more time to sample, plus an invitation to an after-party at a nearby lounge.
