Event Description


Susan B. Anthony was born in February of 1820. A hundred years later, in February 1920, the ratification of the 19th Amendment was still six months away. On February 13, New Mexico became the 32nd state to ratify the 19th Amendment. We like to think that our suffragettes wanted to celebrate that achievement and probably needed a drink thinking about the last four states they needed to pass the amendment in order to achieve their goal.

But since it was Prohibition where could they go? Like us, they looked for a secret speakeasy. And we found one right downtown!

Join the PPG Committee to raise a glass in their honor from 5-7:30 at The Mirror. Cash Bar. (Note: The Mirror only accepts cards – no cash.)
