Entire Venue Package – Walkthrough
You arrive at a classic British telephone box, guarded by two sharply dressed doormen. You try to enter, but one steps in your way. In a heavy Chicago accent, he says, ‘Hey buddy, this is a private party… are you a friend of Charlie Brown?’ – You respond by reassuring him you’re a close friend of Charlie’s, and he lets you proceed. Entering into a short narrow tunnel, clad with red velvet and the smell of bourbon in the air, the dim, smokey light of the casino surrounds you, red and black velvet assures you that this is a speakeasy with class and style. Without a moment’s hesitation the man himself comes to greet you, with your coat taken care of and a drink in your hand you carry on. To your left the blackjack tables in full swing, to your right a line of beautifully dressed dancing girls, seducing you with their best moves from upon the bar, a variety of prohibition classics being passed between their legs.
As you walk forward the roulette stops you in your tracks, Rosie Two Shoes hits the jack-pot again, throwing her arms in the air. Then suddenly you catch a shimmer in the distance, the music stops, the lights go out… As the spotlight glows, Sparkles Galores impresses with burlesque and sexy shapes by the dozen. Then, unannounced two masked men run in and a full blown shoot out ensues, reminding you that danger still lurks rife in the downtown streets. But rest assured that you’re in safe hands with Charlie’s mob, and this will be a night to remember..
