My co-worker at the bar is all excited. She just found the perfect silky black corset. She has matching rhinestone spanks, a cute hat and a classy cigar box. She has heels and a hairstyle to boot.

She is one of the hundreds of Olympians excited about the Repeal Day Celebration set for the 80th anniversary of the end of alcohol prohibition, Dec. 5.

The Capitol Theater, once again, will be a virtual time warp, as everything of the era will be resurrected. From classic cocktails to Tush! Burlesque and Greta Jane Quartet's old-timey music in the 1924 theater, it will indeed be a celebration.

A Scofflaw Cocktail with Four Roses Bourbon is one of the cocktails to expect.

"This is one drink I like to make every year for Repeal Day because of the drink's history," explains Bradford Knutson, event organizer. "In the early 1920s, a contest was held in America to find a demeaning term to describe a lawless drinker. The winning word was scofflaw."

An Italian Martini will also be on the menu, using Old English gin, a reproduction of a 1783 recipe, and Pisa nut liquor instead of Vermouth. Homemade bathtub gin using moonshine from McMenamin's The Spar will also be on hand.

Dressing from the era is encouraged.

Repeal Prohibition Day Celebration 2013, w/Tush! Burlesque, Greta Jane Quartet, host Elizabeth Lord, 6 p.m., Thursday, Dec 5, Capitol Theater, 206 Fifth Ave, Olympia, $15, $10/OFS members, price includes one cocktail, olympiafilmsociety.org
