When the Cullen-Harrison Act went into effect at 12: 01 AM on 7 April 1933, thirsty customers could buy a beer that was 3.2 percent alcohol by weight instead of the “near beer” they had suffered with all through Prohibition. The public lined up on “New Beer’s Eve” (Apr 6) at breweries in 20 states and Washington, DC, and purchased 1.5 million barrels. 7 April has remained an unofficial holiday celebrating beer in the US.

5 April is National Deep Dish Pizza Day to celebrate Chicago deep dish pizza—originated by Uno’s— and the efforts by Uno Chicago Grill to bring deep dish pizza to the entire United States. The original restaurant, which opened in 1943, began serving deep dish as a way to make sure hungry families could get a “real meal” when it came to pizza. Up to that point, pizza was hardly more than a snack. Annually celebrated on the anniversary of the day (5 April 1979) that the first restaurant outside Chicago opened (in Boston, Massachusetts).
