Wiseguy Wednesday: Trivia Night at The Underground, every second Wednesday of the month, starting Nov. 14 at 7 p.m. Is there anything more satisfying than drinking and thinking at the same time? The Mob Museum’s monthly Trivia Night is a fun and fact-filled contest to find out who can have the best time while also showing off their knowledge in a range of vintage Las Vegas, organized crime and law enforcement-related categories. Of course, there’s no better setting for such an activity than The Underground, The Mob Museum’s new Prohibition exhibition. The contest will feature four rounds of 10 questions each, with prizes for teams finishing first, second and third. Complimentary entry with password “Trivia Night” at The Underground’s side entrance.
Kefauver Day, Thursday, Nov. 15, 7 a.m. – 7 p.m. Admission to the Museum is FREE for guests with Nevada I.D. and buy-one, get-one for non-Nevada residents. The Underground speakeasy will offer 20 percent off select cocktails, draft beer, wine by the glass and food from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. The bar menu will be available beginning at 10 a.m.
Thanksgiving Hours: On Thanksgiving, Thursday, Nov. 22, The Underground speakeasy and distillery will be open from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m.
Daily Distillery Tours, 5 p.m. During these $12, 30-minute tours which include a sampling of a variety of distilled spirits, participants receive an in-depth explanation of the distillery equipment and distillation process and learn about Prohibition and its impact on distilled spirits. In addition to learning about the historical origin of Prohibition and the drinking culture that existed before the 1920s, guests have the chance to take part in a spirit-tasting experience of house-distilled moonshine, vodka and the Jamaica ginger infusion. The Distillery Tours are designed to encourage visitors to develop an appreciation for the flavor of moonshine—especially since The Underground’s moonshine is as authentic as it can safely get. It is made in-house with 100 percent corn and bottled at 50 percent ABV. Tour participants have the option of purchasing souvenir bottles afterwards to commemorate their experience.
For more information, please call (702) 229-2734 or visit themobmuseum.org. Admission to the speakeasy is included with general Museum admission and free any time for patrons using the daily passwords found on Instagram Stories @MobMuseum_Underground.
