I am looking for some ideas for glassware to serve our drinks in. Any fun ideas?

Hmmm, never had that question before. We always just use normal glasses or even better for clean-up, we use plastic ware. I was able to locate some depression area photos and descriptions here:

I would also suggest looking in ebay under the Pottery & Glass > Glass category and searching for the term 1920. It pulls up lots of interesting glassware.

We are hosting 4 Deuces tomorrow and also had the glassware question. After doing some research, we found out that many speakeasies in the 1920's used to serve their moonshine in coffee mugs to avoid detection. We were able to find some art deco looking mugs at the dollar store and are giving one to each person with their packets at the beginning of the night. This serves as not only their drinking glass but also as one of their "party favors" for the night. For $1 each we figured we couldn't go wrong.
