I had been wanting to go to Gerber’s 1933 Tavern for the longest time. When I heard they were having a Prohibition Party, I made immediate plans to go with my friend Kim. I think I mentioned my problem getting an outfit together. I think I didn’t do too badly.
The Tavern is a beautiful place. It looks as if it hasn’t changed much since the ’30’s. Um, not that I was around in the 1930’s. I’m not that old. We sat at the bar and ordered drinks. The service was awesome. We ordered a hummus appetizer, which came with pita chips, vegetables and olives. Yum!
We were there early and the only ones dressed up at first. The staff and other patrons admired our outfits. Later on, more costumes showed up. They were going to have a trivia contest at eight, but we left before that. Most of my knowledge is quite trivial, but for some reason I never do well at trivia contests.
I plan to return to Gerber’s 1933 Tavern soon, possibly for lunch, because there were a couple of sandwiches on the menu that’s I’d love to try. They are located at 16 Liberty St., Utica, NY. They are open Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday 11:30 a.m. to 10 p.m., Friday and Saturday 11:30 a.m. to midnight, closed Sunday and Monday. You can Like them on Facebook. I did.
Do you know we have a Utica, Ohio!? We have them to thank for Velvet Ice cream!! Yummy and over 100 years of making it.
I love old fashioned clothing and taverns! It would be so much fun to join you! This year, my trip will be to Long Beach, Mississippi to see my college girlfriend. She was my.maid of honor in my first wedding. 🙂
You look very warm, friendly and pretty!! xo
thanks! I didn’t realize there were other Uticas, although I knew there are a few Romes (I grew up in Rome, NY). I wonder if you can get Velvet Ice cream around here. Mmmmmm…
Oh, it would be a lovely treat, you would find it so creamy and thick with ingredients. Smiles, Robin
