Eighty years ago today, the 21st Amendment repealed federal Prohibition, which had been put into place by the 18th Amendment in 1920. On that very same day, San Antonio's Esquire Tavern opened its doors to what would become known as the San Antonio River Beautification Project (now the lively River Walk, bustling with nightlife).
