The first “Speakeasy Murder Mystery” July 14th, 2017 memories. Each guest had a specific character to portray and did they play it well! Telling the truth was optional, lying, cheating, steeling and sleeping around was the practice for the evening.

New speakeasy password is “Blind Pig”
The new password for the speakeasy is “Blind Pig.” With all passwords there is a connection to prohibition. Did you know the prohibition relevance to the last password “Dawes?” President Calvin Coolidge’s Vice President was Charles Dawes the brother to Beman Dawes the founder of Dawes Arboretum. BTW when coming to the speakeasy go to the door that has “Mr. Speaks Office” and peek door and knock.
Party Rooms Available In Future Brothel
Looking for a relaxed place to have your group gather during the holiday season? Mr. Speaks has finished his interviews for the new brothel called Ginger Bread Row.

Mr. Speaks is going to be available at 4:30 pm Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and  Saturday
Remember the Speakeasy is located directly across the street from the historic jail at 57 S. 3rd St.. Look for the illuminated yellow light at the peak of the roof. Knock a SOS on the solid black door with a peep hole and enter.  If it is locked please look inconspicuous while waiting for someone to open the door. When asked the password respond “Blind Pig.” BTW if the yellow outside light is not on. Mr. Speaks has received word from his informants that it is not safe to partake in any juice. If you are coming from out of town text this number 1910 to Mr. Speaks at 740 404 8971 or 740 405 2534 . Wait for his text response before proceeding to the Sand Hollow Juice bar.
BTW if you see someone that looks very familiar…he is! That is our favorite food truck operator Ken Monroe from Poppy’s Roadside Diner helping Mr. Speaks. Ken has made himself available to serve up great juice and a specially prepared food menu for his regular and new customers!

By the Way

Check your Pockets
Before leaving, check your pockets and bags for our logo glasses. Recently we have caught a few trying to escape when the merchandise alarms went off. The alarms are loud and annoy our neighbors, guests and wildlife. Please help us keep the peace and serenity and rogue glasses here. Warning to Employees & Guest – Excessive frisking is not encouraged or condoned! Thank you Sand Hollow Winery Management
Wine Only
Please respect our need to follow state law regarding consuming other types of alcohol at Sand Hollow Winery.
You can try hiding it in a red solo cup. But really, how many of those do you see at a winery! All that it takes is one customer seeing the illegal consumption. Who tells a bar owner that files an anonymous complaint. Then we have to explain that red solo cup to the State of Ohio, Division of Liquor! Thanks for understanding.
Live – Music Police I’m Playing You
Latest BMI Update: This might be coincidental BUT after Evolution played and I posted the “Cease and Desist” letter in this newsletter last week the winery website was hacked. Google flagged it as a potential malware site that would be dangerous to open up. Unfortunately, it was necessary to hire a third party to clean my website of malware but I am back up and in the good gracious with Google. However, when inquiring if the site could have been compromised by a disgruntle person like my friends at BMI they said absolutely. If they can hack into the FBI, Hillary’ server and the White House they can surely get into a winery website. Hmmm probably should not have mentioned all of those sites now I’m on their watch list! Coincidentally the BMI letters and phone calls have stopped. That may change after this posting.
To see the previous “Music Police” post go to newsletter archives above.
