Dillinger Days at Hotel Congress

Posted By on Thu, Jan 17, 2013 at 11:01 AM

If you like helping a good cause, local beer, whisky tastings, cigars, and the 1930s then head on down to Hotel Congress on January 18th. From the Hotel Congress Facebook Page:

The Dillinger Days festivities kick off with a Friday night soiree that recaptures the spirit of the 1930s. “John Dillinger” will start off the night with a quick-draw, gun slinging show on the Club Congress stage. Then, taste premium whiskies, including an award-winning local — Vickers Brothers Whisky from Flagstaff. Borderlands Brewery will also be on hand with tastes of their local made brews. A museum of 1930s memorabilia in Copper Hall plus big band tunes from Kings of Pleasure and music from Duo Vibrato add to the early century vibe.

Proceeds benefit the Greater Tucson Fire Foundation to restore a 1923 American LaFrance Fire Engine — the very engine that responded to the Hotel Congress fire on January 23, 1934.

Also the Cup Cafe will have a Chili bar for noshing between events. Festivities start at 7pm. $20 in advance, $25 at the door.
