NORTH BEACH—Today marks the 80th anniversary of Prohibition's repeal, and Goorin Brothers is throwing a celebration. So in honor of the 21st Amendment, head over to 1612 Stockton Street tonight from 6 to 9p.m. for drinks and a speakeasy dance party. Remember to dress the part with a hat from Goorin's Heritage collection. Tip: whisper the word "Scofflaw" to tonight's bartender for a secret cocktail. [Racked Inbox]
