In last week's DISH issue, we raised a toast to our thriving beer, wine and cocktail culture. We've reached an obsession of Dionysian proportions here in the Triangle, but let's not forget the time when imbibing a fancy beverage wasn't so easy.

Tonight, master bartender Scott Richie will present "A History of Prohibition Cocktails" at the main branch of the Durham County Library. INDY readers voted Richie Best Bartender in Durham County in 2010, 2011 and 2012. Former co-owner of Whiskey, he currently bartends at Alley Twenty Six and hosts cocktail-making workshops at The Cookery.

Tonight, Richie will detail the rich cocktail history of the Al Capone-era, when cities teemed with hidden speakeasies that scrambled to make drinks on the sly with limited access to alcohol, paving the way for the ingenuity of the craft today. The free discussion takes place at 7 p.m. at the Main Library, 300 N. Roxboro St. More information is here.
