Guests gathered at their own speakeasy, Watercrest Macon’s one of a kind cigar and scotch lounge named Bogey’s, for a glass of ‘hooch’ or ‘giggle water,’ as it was called during Prohibition times. The lively notes of the piano had guests on the dance floor showcasing their best dance moves like ‘the Charleston, the Shimmy, and the Fox Trot.’

“Our residents proclaimed this party as ‘the Bees Knees’ and ‘the Cat’s Meow,'” says Nat Watkins, Executive Director of Watercrest Macon. “As part of our Watercrest culture, we embrace the opportunities to engage with our residents through unique events that spark nostalgia and fond memories.”
