A Beverly Hills celebrity hangout has been busted trying to defy strict COVID-19 restrictions with a secret speakeasy-style New Year’s Eve party, according to a report.
“Welcome back to the 20’s Prohibition,” read an invitation in script left in takeout bags for those ordering from upscale Italian restaurant La Scala, according to the Los Angelest Times.
“We are currently taking reservations for New Year’s Eve dinner. Inside,” the message said of the “Speak Easy” party.
“Please keep this discreet, but tell all your friends,” the message reportedly read.
Photos of the invitation were soon posted on Twitter, however — reaching city officials and Beverly Hills cops after a slew of people tagged them in posts.
