Step back into the Roaring Twenties as bootleggers take over the Point Allerton Lifesaving Station for a night of Speakeasy fun!
Your first drink is on the house and you will receive some starter "money" for casino games. Appetizers will be served up by renowned local caterer Michael Aprea. A cash bar with beer and wine, along with a special prohibition era cocktail, The Old Fashioned will be available.
BRING YOUR OWN COFFEE MUG: At a Speakeasy, bottled beer was often concealed in a paper bag and mixed drinks and wine were served in coffee mugs. If you bring your mug, we will fill it!
CASINO GAMES: Play Blackjack, Roulette, raffles and more with Play Money. If you run out of play money, more will be available for sale. Prizes go to the top 3 winners at the end of the evening.
SPEAKEASY AMBIANCE: Local event planner and bartender extraordinaire, Jon Mongeau, will help us create the 1920's atmosphere within the Hull Lifesaving Museum's Victorian era building.
PASSWORD: When you arrive, be sure to say "Joshua sent me" to enter.
This is going to be a great night and revenue generated will go to support the Hull Lifesaving Museum's community programs.

Remembering, Honoring, Celebrating
Hull's signature summer event is just weeks away!
Join us for a spectacular event as we light the harbor with more than one thousand flares, celebrating Hull's maritime heritage. The evening begins with a Coast Guard City commemoration at Hull Cemetery, followed by a full schedule of music, food and family fun.
Join us at the Lifesaving Museum for music, museum tours and children's activities, or at A Street Pier for a mellow steel drum performance. Then, thanks to our friends at Save the Harbor, Save the Bay, we will welcome back the Boston Circus Guild's amazing Fire Jugglers, just before the main event - the Harbor Illumination! Stay tuned for a full schedule of events!

USCG Cutter James Commissioned in Boston - August 2015
The JAMES, is named for Hull's own legendary lifesaver Joshua James. James is credited with saving more than 540 lives from shipwrecks during his 60 year career as both a Massachusetts Humane Society volunteer lifesaver and the first Keeper of the historic Point Allerton US Lifesaving Station, now the Hull Lifesaving Museum.
This impressive new cutter, the fifth of eight Legend Class National Security Cutters is the most technologically advanced cutters in the Coast Guard fleet. They are designed to perform a variety of missions and operations at sea including: national defense, port security, alien migrant interdiction, maritime law enforcement, environmental defense, search and rescue, and drug interdiction.
Rear Admiral John Korn, Assistant Commandant for Acquisitions said of USCGC James, "It seems only fitting for a cutter that will protect the lives of millions of Americans to bear the name James." The USCGC James was christened on August 16, 2014 at Ingalls Shipbuilding in Pascagoula, Mississippi and will commissioned August 8 in Boston.
