It’s dry time and the Hotel Alexandra is the place to be! It’s illegal to sell alcohol, but the secret still is in the back room and there’s drinks all around – that is, until word gets out that the Hotel Inspector and a liquor raiding party of lawmen are on their way to bust the hotel, and everyone in it. You’ve got to make yourself scarce, but there’s one problem: the door’s locked. Can you escape in time?

Did you miss out last time? Well, our escape room is back by popular demand! Grab a group of friends (no more than 8), and put your puzzle solving skills to the test.  Ages 12+
Admission: $20

1919 Prohibition Halloween Dinner Theatre

Saturday, October 26, 6 pm
Your host for this evening is Ms. Eleanor Crumpacker (a.k.a. the incredible Mag Ruffman), whose attempts to recruit you for the Women’s Christian Temperance Union and away from the temptation of alcohol will no doubt be compromised by the lovely intoxicants provided by Goodlot Farm + Farmstead Brewing Co. The evening’s musical feature, the Tipsy Temperance Trio, will hopefully help distract Mrs. Crumpacker, all while guests partake in dinner catered by Lavender Blue. Early 1900s costumes suggested. Prizes for best costumes.
Tickets: $ 80 per person
Book your tickets by calling 519-941-1114.
