Today is National Repeal Day!!!! 💃🍹🍾💃 •
December 5th 1933, Repeal Day was the day that Prohibition, otherwise known as the great experiment, ended and America was FREE to consume alcohol 🍷😀•
The Twenty-first Amendment to the Constitution was ratified and alcohol Prohibition was officially repealed. If you only know one thing about Prohibition, it’s probably the fact that it was a tremendous failure. •
Making alcohol illegal led to huge increases in organized crime, corruption, and violence. •
The Eighteenth Amendment (which established national prohibition) made a sizeable portion of the population criminals overnight. Even though the sale and manufacturing of alcohol was criminalized, the majority of the people who drank responsibly wanted to continue to do so•
Where there is a demand for something, a supply will be filled, whether it is legal or not. So Prohibition didn’t make alcohol disappear, it just allowed famous mobsters like Al Capone to step in and provide an elaborate, yet dangerous, underground market •
Let’s drink and be merry 🥂🍷🥃🍸🍹🍾 •

Welcome to our cozy restaurant right on your left off the South Bridge of Siesta Key. We’ve now been here about 15 years and still to this day many have never heard of the hidden and fun location that is olde Stickney point road. The neighborhood is becoming such a wonderful beautiful hangout, a true staycation kind of vibe. Between the beach accesses, the pub crawl path, the live music, and island time mentality... it’s hard to not have fun. If you feel you haven’t relaxed in a minute during this holiday season, stop in and we can serve you what you need. #SPECIALS #DRINKS #APPETIZERS #DINNER #CLAYTONS #SIESTAKEY #SIESTAGRILLE #sarasotaflorida #restaurantlife #instafood #instafun #instaIsland

Happy Prohibition Repeal Day! On December 5,1933, with the passage of the Twenty-first Amendment, the anti-alcohol laws in the US known as Prohibition were finally repealed. The introduction of the Volstead Act in 1920 led to 13 years of illegal alcohol trade that left a legacy in this country, essentially spurring on the culture of speakeasies and cocktails that we still enjoy today (legally!).
I turned one of my closets into a walk-in wine cupboard, and today it is going to be a bit depleted in celebration before going out to taste some sweet, sweet liquor that thankfully with regulation is unlikely to kill me.
