1920’s Speakeasy. The Possum sent me…

Shanghai LilyThis Sunday, March 30, 2008 Somewhere in Time Unlimited has cooked up a wonderful event for its members and friends – “Shanghai Lily’s Speakeasy”.

The highly creative “back story” is that Lily ran this Speakeasy in the seedy part of town just outside of the City of Seattle’s reach.  The woman had great music, food and of course, the hooch was smuggled in despite Prohibition.  The Georgetown cops would “bust the place” on a regular basis looking to catch her having hooch on site.  Aaaaah, that’s where the imagination really comes in!

SITU has hired “The Chicago 7” featuring Marc Smason and Joanne Klein as the band.  Additionally, there will be dance demonstrations done by the University of Washington Swing Kids.  Participants in this event are encouraged to come in 1920’s attire and bring a potluck item that would work well with the theme.

I shall post photos out to the Somewhere in Time, Unlimited website after they become available.  Be sure to check back under “Prior Events” on the site to see if Shanghai Lily’s Speakeasy has been uploaded.
