Old School Thursday: Cheesy & Boozy Edition

Today is National Hazelnut Cake Day because of course it is. Random, yet delicious.

June 2nd’s other news is also pretty random. Today in 1851, Maine became the first state in the U.S. to ban alcohol, almost 70 years before the 18th amendment kicked off Prohibition on a national level and 82 years before the 21st amendment repealed the 18th. Eighty-two years – that is a long time to be a booze-free resident of chilly, dark Maine!

In other early 20th century news, today in 1928, Kraft’s Velveeta was introduced, filling a vast need for smooth-melting processed cheese.

So today, to celebrate, melt a little cheese and have a drink – because you can.
