Honoring The Anniversary Of The End Of Prohibition, 3 Dallas Area Bars Are Selling Booze For Pennies

Things are going to get a little interesting at some area bars on Saturday.

On that night, various bars will honoring the 82nd anniversary of the repeal of Prohibition, celebrating the decision made on December 5, 1933, when, after a 13-year literal nationwide dry spell, the 18th Amendment was repealed, the 21st Amendment to the U.S. Constitution was ratified, booze became legal again and glasses got clinked and all that jazz.

Now, here's where this gets interesting: A handful of bars will be celebrating the occasion by selling drinks for less than a buck apiece.

Who, you ask? Let's check the tape.

Victor Tangos. From 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. this Henderson Avenue spot is doling out cocktails for 82 cents — because prohibition ended 82 years ago, naturally. Math isn't hard.

THIS SATURDAY is Repeal Day! Be here at 5pm for 82¢ feature cocktails in celebration of the end of Prohibition 82 years ago. The cheap booze will flow until 7pm, unless we run out first!Posted by Victor Tangos on Thursday, December 3, 2015

Ron's Place. This Addison bar is selling 30-cent Sundial IPAs from Community Beer Company from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Why 30? We're not sure, but we're not asking questions. Rather, we'll point out again that, just as is the case at Victor Tangos, there's a time frame on this deal. Y'all just thought you were gonna stroll through here with five dollars and get alcohol poisoning? Nah.

World Beer of Arlington. Located somewhere between Dallas and Fort Worth, is selling beer for a mere ten cents a pop — well, OK, just your first one. Good call on keeping a limit there. Remember in 1974 when Arlington's own Texas Rangers played a ballgame up in Cleveland against the Indians during a “10-cent beer night” promotion? It didn't go so well. In fact, it ended in a riot. And people say baseball is boring.
