Imagine walking into an underground 1930’s ping pong social club (which we’re sure they existed, by the way) with vintage motorcars parked outside, hot jazz, cigarette girls and, best of all: Prohibition Era priced cocktails.
For one night only, SPIN will transform our space into our rendition of the perfect prohibition speakeasy experience. The party is also hosted by our dear friends at The Jazz Age Lawn Party and sponsored by Jim Beam and their new prohibition bottle.
Let’s refresh your mind with a little bit of US history: “The Prohibition Party (PRO) is a political party in the United States best known for its historic opposition to the sale or consumption of alcoholic beverages (how dare they!). It is the oldest existing third party in the US. The party was an integral part of the temperance movement. While never one of the leading parties in the United States, it was once an important force in the Third Party System during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. It declined dramatically after the repeal of Prohibition in 1933. The party’s candidate received 518 votes in the 2012 presidential election and 5,617 votes in the 2016 presidential election.”
So we thought…why not throw a ping pong prohibition party?
In case you’ve been living in your NYC cave and haven’t heard about The Jazz Age Lawn Party here’s more info about them:
“The JALP is the world’s original and largest prohibition era inspired gathering. The event started in 2005 as a small gathering on NYC’s Governors Island, and has since grown into one of New York City’s most beloved events. This historically sold out event attracts thousands of time travelers each year, who come together to discover the music and zeitgeist of the 1920s. Consistently selected by the New York Times as one of the year’s most memorable events, Jazz Age Lawn Party offers a unique, interactive opportunity to relive one of the most colorful and formative epochs in American history.”
By joining forces with the jazz age leaders of New York, we’re here to bring you the throwback evening of the year.
We cordially invite you to transform yourself and come dressed to era in order to receive access to our VIP room and the BIG discounts on our prohibition drink specials. #ProhibitionPong #UnitedByPingPong
