Repeal Day party gets bawdy at Esquire Tavern



On Dec. 5, 1933, prohibition officially ended in the United States—marking the day thirsty people everywhere were able to drink alcohol, in moderation or in excess, legally.

Nearly a hundred years later, San Antonians commemorated the day with a glitzy cocktail party, burlesque dancers, an ice sculpture of a San Antonio Light headline immortalizing the day and lots of libations during a Repeal Party at the Esquire Tavern.

And as these photos show, the boozy affair was topped off with just a touch of highbrow raunch as scantily clad women shimmied down the aisles and attendees threw back drinks.
