Lauren and Mark Singer from Chicago Crime Tours, Chicago's legit crime and gangster tour, attended the Chicago History Museum's "Last Speakeasy on the Eve of Repeal" celebrating the 80th anniversary of the repeal of the 18th Amendment. Attendees defied Prohibition while dressing the 1930s part. Party goers danced to the era's music, enjoyed hooch and listened to storytellers. Prohibition-era cocktails were crafted and provided by Templeton Rye, purveyors of "the good stuff." Deirdre Capone, great niece of Al Capone, was also on hand sharing stories about Chicago's most famous gangster, including the "true" story behind Al's scar and the St. Valentine's Day Massacre.
