High West 10th Annual Repeal Day Party
As you may or may not know, Park City’s High West Distillery and Saloon was Utah’s first legal distillery since 1870. This Saturday, December 7, from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m., High West will “revel in Utah’s deciding vote that ended Prohibition in 1933” at the 10th Annual National Repeal Day party, held at the High West Saloon.
Say the folks at High West, “Guests are encouraged to take part in the revelry with flapper and gangster attire. Live entertainment, food, a cash bar and exclusive access to High West’s newest whiskey release will be offered.”
“The past ten years have been nothing short of an incredible journey for the High West family,” Elisabeth Flaherty, High West’s head of hospitality said. “We are so grateful to our guests and patrons who love the High West experience as much as we do, and we look forward to sharing many more meals, spirits and reasons to celebrate for decades to come.” A $40 ticket includes food and admission.
