Drinks with a Prohibitionist
Join the Capitol for a casual evening of drinks and conversation with legendary saloon smasher Carry A. Nation. When theatrical temperance speaker Carry A. Nation toured North Carolina in 1907, she did not like what she observed. She saw a state where alcohol was widely used, claiming that Salisbury, NC was second only to Chicago as “the whiskeyest-soaked city in the United States.” Nation was a fiery temperance speaker, known internationally for her “hatchetations,” where she went into bars and saloons to smash fixtures and merchandise with a hatchet. This event will feature Carry Nation reenacted. The Capitol’s new exhibit “Inflamed by Spirits: North Carolina’s Role in Temperance and Prohibition” will also be on display. This event is ages 21 and up. Beer will be provided by Raleigh Brewing Company. Food will be provided by Fresh Market. $20; Thursday, 7-9 pm; 1 Edenton St, Raleigh, NC; 919.733.4994
