For months, CPTV solicited prohibition-era photographs and memorabilia from Connecticut residents for Prohibition: Connecticut Goes Dry, an original documentary airing soon. To celebrate, they've teamed up with the Connecticut Historical Society, Glastonbury's Pond House and Manchester's own purveyors of contemporary moonshine, Onyx Spirits, for a night of flapper dresses, fedoras, speakeasies and food. After downing some creative moonshine cocktails and grub, attendees, who'll catch the first glimpse of the documentary, will get to wander through the museum and gaze at other historical CT ephemera. Seating's limited, so get on the phone, flappers.
