Flapper Friday -- Detroit is gonna party like it's 1920

Someone sent me this article recently, and the headline made me turn cartwheels:

Party Like it's 1920: Detroit City Distillery Opening in Eastern Market.

First because it comforts me to know that other people are interested in partying like it's 1920.

Second because Detroit needs this kind of cool new business.

Third because it involves gin. And anything involving good gin gets an automatic cartwheel from me.
Whee! Good gin!

The Prohibition-themed micro-distillery (love those words) and tasting room will be located in an old Eastern Market slaughterhouse (which is also kind of a cool old word even though I don't like thinking about its actual meaning).

The outside

The inside

Although it is not slated to open until Spring of 2014, distiller J.P. Jerome is already barrel-aging whiskey in preparation for opening.

How cool is that?

Cheers, everyone! Have a great weekend!
