CHICAGO — Tomorrow might be thirsty Thursday, but Wednesday offers plenty of ways to imbibe with a Prohibition-repeal party, wine and whiskey specials, and a trivia night.

The Last Speakeasy at Chicago History Museum, 1601 N. Clark St., 6:30-10 p.m.

The museum celebrates the 80th anniversary of Prohibition's demise with (what else?) a themed party that includes a 1930s-style band, Prohibition-era cocktails, dance lessons, an appearance from Al Capone's grandniece Deidre Capone and more. It's an "eve of repeal" party, as the 21st Amendment was passed on Dec. 5, 1933. Tickets are $35 for members of the museum and $45 for non-members.

25 percent off wine and whiskey at Drop, 1909 N. Lincoln Ave., 8 p.m.

In lieu of Drop's once-weekly Wednesday Wine Down events, the late-night club will offer a selection of wine and whiskeys at 25 percent off.

Trivia and Whiskey Wednesdays at Crossroads Public House, 2630 N. Clark St, 8 p.m.

Crossroads hosts its weekly trivia and whiskey night, awarding prizes to the winners. Trivia is free to play.
