On Sept 21, Maxwelton Braes, Thyme Cuisine and the Ellie Helm Foundation will host its first Speakeasy Casino Night in the newly redecorated lodge hall. Together with casino events, the evening will be a night of blackjack, craps, poker and roulette for a good cause.
For one night, Maxwelton Braes is transformed into a 1920s speakeasy casino. With table-side servers in era dress, the night is reminiscent of the low-lit backrooms of yesteryear. Attendees are also encouraged to dress to theme, with prizes for the best dressed.
A special snack menu, whiskey tasting and wine toss are also featured and the evening is capped off with music and dancing by DJ Hope Reyes. In true speakeasy form, those who pre-purchase tickets will receive a text message with the password that admits them into the hidden whiskey experience.
Doors open at 6 pm with the night starting at 7 pm. Tickets are $25 in advance and $30 at the door. Tickets can be purchased at doorcountytickets.com and include admission, start-up cash and bar snacks.
