GEORGETOWN— If you haven't visited Goorin Bros. brand new hat shop on Wisconsin Avenue yet, perhaps a speakeasy-style soiree will entice you. Tonight, Goorin Bros. is hosting a party to celebrate the Repeal of Prohibition Day, with booze, music, and complimentary Repeal of Prohibition buttons for all guests. P.S. Remember the word "Scofflaw," and whisper it at the party to try a secret cocktail. [RackedWire]
