The Blind Tiger Speakeasy Gala


Transport yourself to the lost world of Prohibition-era Sacramento, brought back to life for one night only by the Historical Old Sacramento Foundation. On May 15, Fat’s Catering & Banquet House in Old Sacramento is being transformed into a glamorous 1920s speakeasy for the Blind Tiger Speakeasy Gala. Guests will be treated to classic cocktails, a flow of appetizers, games of chance, music, dancing, and a silent auction. The event organizers are keeping it authentic, too. The windows of the venue will be blacked out, and guests should expect to be greeted at the door through a sliding peephole. There’s also a rumor that the police have heard about the event and are planning a (mock) raid.

Guests to this hidden event should be dressed up in their 1920s best, be that flapper dresses and long beads or cuffed trousers with fedoras. Once in costume, guests can take photos with the beautiful vintage cars (donated for the evening by the California Automobile Museum) parked out front before imbibing on that outlawed liquor.
