Shhh - Speakeasy is Coming!

Unless you have a time machine, visiting a real speakeasy is something you won't be able to tick off your bucket list - at least not one that illegally serves booze in prohibition-era America. While you'll never know the thrill of drinking questionable bath tub gin underground with the constant threat of a police raid, you can enjoy an evening that gives a nod to an era of hidden entrances, secret passwords and Pittsburgh's hidden secrets. Join us on November 4, 2021 for Speakeasy - A Night of Spirits - a fun filled evening of adventure, mystery, entertainment and fun, Click above for more info. All proceeds go to our programs and services for children and adults with disabilities and special needs.
