What’s a Rich Text element?
The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.
Static and dynamic content editing
A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!
How to customize formatting for each rich text
Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
On October 14 from 6-11 pm, Westerville will officially forget its reputation as the “Dry Capital of the World” by means of beer, food, and live music. Uptown Westerville Inc. invites you to Uptown Untapped for the first time ever in Westerville.
During Prohibition, the townspeople of Westerville resorted to explosives to show their outrage against drinking. The reputation was so strong that the Anti-Saloon League moved its national headquarters from the nation’s capital to Westerville.
Now, you can enjoy beer, food, and music with your community and welcome a bright future that includes fun events like this. Let the irony sink in as you sip beer on the same streets where people once protested drinking.
East Main Street will be closed. The event is 21 and over only. Admission is $15, and beer is $4 for a 12oz pour.
Participating restaurants include Asterisk Supper Club, Red Apron Pizza, Shirley’s Gourmet Popcorn Company, and Jimmy V’s Grill and Pub.
Event proceeds go to support the work of charitable causes including Uptown Westerville Inc. and Neighborhood Bridges.
History of Prohibition in Westerville
In the late 1850s, Westerville was one of the first towns to ban the sale and consumption of alcohol. In the 1870s, when saloons continued to open up despite the law, the townspeople of Westerville took it upon themselves to protest. But they didn’t just protest; two saloons were destroyed with gunpowder. The events became known as the “Whisky War.”
In 1909, when the Anti-Saloon league moved its headquarters to Westerville, many leaders of the prohibition moved to Westerville, as well. Even after prohibition was repealed in the 1930s, Westerville was still the “Dry Capital of the World.”
Now, nearly a century later, you can commemorate Westerville’s unique history by drinking beer, eating good food, and enjoying live music. Be sure to look at homes for sale to experience Westerville's history year-round!
