Pleasure of the Cup: Drinks of the Speakeasy
May 10, 2014 at Ohio Village
It’s June 1930 and the United States has been dry for the past 10 years. But that doesn’t mean that alcohol has completely disappeared from the scene. Join us in this trip back through time to a world of “blind pigs,” bathtub gin, and flappers. Costumed interpreters will escort you through the underground world of the Ohio Village as you learn how the 18th Amendment sent alcohol from public bars and taverns to secret watering holes. Venture into the pharmacy for a “prescription” and learn how alcohol was made in bathtubs and hidden stills. Listen to cool jazz tunes while sipping some favorite drinks of the prohibition era, but watch out for the temperance league members and, worse yet, the police!
Cost: $25/non-member adult (age 21+); $20/OHS adult member (age 21+)

2014 Genealogy Workshops
The Ohio Historical Society’s Archives/Library (OHS), the Franklin County Genealogical and Historical Society (FCGHS) and the Columbus Metropolitan Library (CML) jointly offer a series of programs designed to introduce family history researchers to the many records and resources available to them.
The workshops will offer an in-depth introduction to the basic methods, tools and sources for getting started in your family history research. These programs are recommended to those who have not previously had genealogical instruction or who are looking to refresh or jump-start their genealogical research skills.
Again this year, we will be offering webinar classes for attendees to join and participate in from their personal computers at home.
