Dallas Museum throws Prohibition-themed affair

March 7, 2018 by  

The Dallas Museum of Art recently hosted its annual Prohibition themed party complete with fringe, feathers, sequins and even a Speakeasy.

Those looking for an unconventional good time need to check out cultural icons such as Dallas’ museums. Each year the Dallas Museum of Art’s turns back the clock and opens its atrium, concourse and level four galleries to dapper gents and dolled up dames dressed in 1920s attire.

Tickets to events such as this make excellent corporate gifts.

This year dancers supplied by The Rhythm Room instructed the crowd in doing the foxtrot, Lindy Hop and the Charleston. A photo booth was available as well as a CultureMap Boomerang selfie station so guests could capture for posterity how they looked in their finery

Several specialty drinks were available and a generous spread of beef fajita wraps, chicken biscuit sandwiches, goat cheese and tomato toast and roasted veggie sandwiches was laid out to soak up the hooch. Those who purchased VIP tickets were eligible to enter the secret “bootleggers den” and enjoy a separate menu and DJ Blake Ward.

In addition to dancing, eating and drinking a variety of other activities were available, including: a best-dressed competition with a separate category for men, women and couples; a screening of “The Great Gatsby” in the Horchow Auditorium to put guests in the mood; and a scavenger hunt throughout the museum designed to “track the bootleggers” across the displays.
