Ninety years ago, as Duncan Phillips prepared to open the gallery that bears his name, Prohibition was just over a year old. Certainly, throughout the city of Washington, there were discreet parties where flappers danced the Charleston and men drank hooch. That's the era the Phillips Collection's young members group is trying to conjure at its Speakeasy party this week: They're taking over the carriage house, located in Hillyer Court behind the museum, for a 1920s-inspired party with ginny Stork Club cocktails, a Cointreau tasting and music by Bluebrain. Admission is $10, which includes one drink, and space is limited: e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to RSVP. And don't forget your beaded dress: The best roaring '20s outfit wins a pair of tickets to the Phillips Collection's annual Gala After Party (a $250 value).
