Roll the clock back to 1905 and meet Carry A. Nation, the infamous bar smasher, as she spreads the word about her crusade against the terrible influence of alcohol. The evening will start out with a Temperance Rally at Shannon Hall, complete with prohibitionist-approved refreshments, where she will tell you about her life’s work. Once riled up, the rally will progress to Pal Joey’s bar, which sells the “Demon Rum.” Mrs. Nation, with her ever-ready hatchet, will show everyone how she earned the title of “Bar-Room Smasher.” One drink ticket is included in the regular admission fee, cash bar is also available. Hatchetation Bundle includes regular admission benefits, plus a personalized smash-able bottle and a photo opportunity with Mrs. Nation. Doors open at 6 pm, program starts at 7 pm.
