1919 Mixology

1919 Mixology

Cigars & Liberty is a pre-Memorial Day party offering service members an opportunity to enjoy a night among friends and supporters in a casual setting where they are appreciated, but also able to just hang out and take a load off.

On May 21st, Cigars & Liberty will be dedicated to law enforcement, fire / EMT and military personnel and will be hosted at 1919 Mixology in River Oaks.

If you are not a service member, join us anyway. There aren’t many days we can enjoy a chill evening in the presence of true American heroes!

Many fine cigars will be smoked, people will dance and stories will be told while new memories are created. Thursday’s have been epic at 1919 Mixology and this Thursday will be extra special considering our guests!

  • Champagne toast & light bites for all service members 9 pm – 10 pm

Operation Cigars for Warriors will be onsite collecting cigar donations that will then be shipped to our military personnel deployed around the world.

Cigars by Jonathan will also be onsite offering cigars for sale for our guests, with special pricing for service members.

Lastly, we will also share information about The 100 Club and Homes for Heroes, both non-profit organizations dedicated to helping those who help us in more ways than we can ever imagine!

1919 Mixology, Houston Cigar Life, Noir Entertainment and Dreamland Production will all donate a portion of the evenings proceeds to further support Operation Cigars for Warriors.

As Cigars & Liberty will kick off Memorial Day weekend in Houston and I wanted to share a bit of background on the history of the holiday.

Although ceremonies have been held around America for many decades before the official recognition of Memorial Day, here is the account the day was recognized nationally:

“In 1966, Congress and President Lyndon Johnson declared Waterloo, N.Y., the “birthplace” of Memorial Day. There, a ceremony on May 5, 1866, honored local veterans who had fought in the Civil War. Businesses closed and residents flew flags at half-staff. Supporters of Waterloo’s claim say earlier observances in other places were either informal, not community-wide or one-time events.

By the end of the 19th century, Memorial Day ceremonies were being held on May 30 throughout the nation. State legislatures passed proclamations designating the day, and the Army and Navy adopted regulations for proper observance at their facilities.

It was not until after World War I, however, that the day was expanded to honor those who have died in all American wars. In 1971, Memorial Day was declared a national holiday by an act of Congress, though it is still often called Decoration Day. It was then also placed on the last Monday in May, as were some other federal holidays.” (source)

We look forward to seeing you on Thursday May 21st at Cigars and Liberty. Please share this event with your friends and family who are in law enforcement, fire / EMT or the U.S. Military.
