Dancing Through the Decades!

Screen Shot 2018-01-21 at 11.24.14 AMJoin us Saturday, February 24, 2018 for our Dancing Through the Decades party with WEST END BAND.  50’s 60’s 70’s 80’s or beyond! Costumes encouraged!  8p- midnight.



Haunted Pub Crawl (21+)

Any interest in a Haunted Pub Crawl (21+)?    It’s $25 a head and you get a private tour guide to tell the Haunted History of the bars you visit.  Participants would need to take the Streetcar to the Quarter and be there 20 minutes before.  4p (be there by 340p). We are thinking of offering this as an alternative for those of you don’t want to do the Graveyard Bus tour or those who weren’t able to get tickets on the bus.  Post below or email if you have interest!
