Blind Tiger: A Prohibition Era Spectacular!

  • Future Tenant 819 Penn Avenue Pittsburgh, PA, 15222 United States (map)

Join Future Tenant on Saturday October 29th, 2016 for Blind Tiger: A Prohibition Era Spectacular!

Future Tenant's space on 819 Penn Avenue will be transformed into a life-sized Art Deco exhibition that guests can explore. Live 1920s style music by the renowned Ortner-Roberts Duo will fill the room as guests enjoy drinks and hors doeuvres. Event activities include a mugshot-themed vintage photo booth and a silent auction of original artworks and cultural experiences. Guests are welcomed to dress up in 1920's period attire to celebrate the Halloween season!

The term speakeasy is said to have originated near the Pittsburgh area to describe an unlicensed bar in the latter 1800s. During Prohibition, speakeasies were sometimes referred to as "Blind Tigers." Future Tenant is looking forward to bringing back the Blind Tiger to its birthplace for a new generation to experience.
