Happy Repeal Day and Loungerati's 9th Anniversary! Enjoy your Constitutional Right to Imbibe!

Three cheers to the 21st Amendment!
Happy Repeal Day and 9th Anniversary to the Loungerati readers, staff and contributers past and present! Raise a glass of bubbly because - it is your right!!

The skinny:
On December 5, 1933, the 21st Amendment to the United States Constitution became the law of the land. This piece of legislation repealed the 18th Amendment's Prohibition of alcohol.
XXI Amendment 

Section 1. The eighteenth article of amendment to the Constitution of the United States is hereby repealed.

Section 2. The transportation or importation into any State, Territory, or possession of the United States for delivery or use therein of intoxicating liquors, in violation of the laws thereof, is hereby prohibited.

Section 3. This article shall be inoperative unless it shall have been ratified as an amendment to the Constitution by conventions in the several States, as provided in the Constitution, within seven years from the date of the submission hereof to the States by the Congress.
Loungers Unite:
On December 5, 2006, Loungerati was born on a cocktail napkin at a bar called Brooklyn Social in Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn and memorialized with the epic Lounge Doctrine delivered by one of the forum's founders, The Senator, at the legendary Algonquin Hotel bar the following year. Dorothy Parker would have been proud!

Loungerati continues to serve as an outlet to those who enjoy Lounge culture, the sporting life, exquisite cocktails, classic music, and a good time! Enjoy the holidays and drink responsibly.
