Whiskey History - Prohibition in Frederick: A Spirited Summer Series, June 14, 2017

Explore Frederick's nefarious, dubious, and at times hilarious Prohibition Era history with Tenth Ward Distilling Company's Kyle Pfalzer. Long before Wag's, Guido's and Olde Town, Market Street buzzed with speakeasies when recreational alcohol was illegal between 1920 and 1933. Learn about the local personalities who tried to profit from prohibitions, their exploits, and the national events that lead to their criminal activity. After each free lecture, you can buy tickets to taste some local whiskey supplied by Frederick's very own Tenth Ward Distillery. All tasting ticket proceeds go to Heritage Frederick. (Must be Ages 21 and over.) Organized by the Historial Society of Frederick County.

Flying Dog Film Series: Happy Gilmore, May 24, 2017

Happy hour begins at 6:30pm! Happy Gilmore wants to be a hockey player, but there’s one small detail: he can’t skate. When his grandmother’s house is foreclosed because she didn’t pay her taxes, Happy must try and find a way to make some money to help her. While at a driving range, he finds that he has hidden golf prowess, and others convince him to try pro golfing. Happy is initially reluctant, but when he learns he can make a lot of money, he gives it a try. His driving ability and goofy antics make him a crowd favorite, but tournament champion Shooter McGavin hates sharing the limelight, and tries to throw Happy out. Rated PG-13. Weinberg Center for the Arts.
