Repeal Day Party in SF

San Francisco , 1933 - On December 5, 1933, the 21st Amendment to the U.S Constitution is ratified, repealing Prohibition. Franklin Delano Roosevelt (1881-1945) ran for the presidency in 1932, partly on a platform of the repeal of Prohibition. The 21st Amendment was ratified by the State of California on July 25 th, 1933. On December 5, 1933, Utah was the 36th state to ratify the amendment. President Roosevelt immediately issued a repeal proclamation.
In those days, California was considered the farthest reaches of the United States and, as it was so far from the Federal Government, Prohibition was not as closely followed as in some other states. However, Elixir, then under the ownership of the man who built rebuilt the saloon after the 1906 fire, ran it under the business description of a "soft drink parlor". How "soft" the drinks are, we'll probably never know. But one thing is for sure: 74 years ago, on December 5th, there was a damn big party at ELIXIR. And we're gonna do it again!
