Purim Pandemonium
Gin & Jews: Speakeasy Style
Saturday, March 10, 2012 9pm-1am

Enter the speakeasy and go back to Prohibition- 13 years when America was dry, but the parties never stopped. This year's Purim Pandemonium revives flappers, bootleggers, pleasure-seeking socialites, gangsters, and Prohibition agents.  Who do you want to be? Take your pick and come out to live the Roaring '20s.

 Party-goers over age 21 (with I.D.) can enjoy DJ Matt Statler, dj sheeno, an open bar, and refreshments.

Tickets are $18 in advance, $20 at the door, and $15 each for groups of 10 or more. Click below to purchase tickets or contact Jennifer Vess at

Millions of people got their introduction to Baltimore by watching "The Wire."  The show examined some very difficult urban problems.  For example, did Omar Little die of lead poisoning?  Can children like Wallace and Dukie be saved?  Tapping Into "The Wire" uses the television series as a road map for exploring connections between inner-city poverty and drug-related violence.  Dr. Peter Beilenson and Patrick McGuire have written a compelling, highly-readable examination of urban policy and public health issues impacting cities across the nation.  Each chapter recounts scenes from "The Wire," placing the characters' challenges into the broader context of public policy. Dr. Peter Beilenson is Howard County's health officer.  From 1992 to 2005 he served as Baltimore City's health commissioner.  Patrick McGuire is a journalist with more than 20 years' experience, fourteen of which were at the Baltimore Sun.
