I don't think it is Dry, it's not a religious holiday.

Anyways, Monday Madness is definately on and the drink will be flowing at Fibber McGees!!

It's not dry - it's only moon / religion based holidays that are dry the night before... so next week there will be a dry night the night before the first eid holiday (i think)

As I said elsewhere, that is irrelevant. The promoter can obtain a licence to sell alcohol at any event.
