Wineries are Magical
TONIGHT is Girls Night Out at the Speakeasy!
Mr. Speaks will be at the speakeasy tonight Oct 26 for Girls Night Out. He will have the outdoor yellow light on for you starting at 4:30 pm. The secret pass code is 18 21. You can text 740-405-2534 for closing time. Chef Ken will have flat bread with assorted options along with Rueben, Ham and Swiss cheese wraps available. If you are not a Anti Saloon Detective or member of the Temperance Society stop in and see our new digs.
Count Down to the Sand Hollow Halloween Party Oct 29th!
The 4th Annual Sand Hollow Halloween Party is right around the corner! This year the party will be held at our new Sand Hollow Winery Speakeasy, located at 57 S. Third St. - straight across the street from the Licking County Historic Jail. The party will take place this Saturday, Oct. 29, from 6-9 p.m.
There will be a costume contest with prizes for the top three winners, plus party favors for wine pairing and cupcakes to "die" for! 
If you come hungry, not to worry, Poppy's Roadside Diner Chef Ken Monroe will have his soon-to-be famous flatbread pizzas available for purchase. In addition, Sand Hollow has a great selection of Pearl Valley Cheeses, sausage and crackers to assemble a perfect cheeseboard for your favorite wines.

If you don't want to come in costume, that is fine, too. There will be plenty to enjoy. In fact, there will likely be a visitor or two from the Jail of Terror haunted attraction going on right now in the county jail. (One might even resemble your favorite vintner!) If you dare to venture over to the Jail of Terror to get the bejeevers scared out of you the cost is only $16. If you are eager to go through, you can go to the head of the line with a Fast Pass for $25.
There is no RSVP required for this event. See you all Saturday!
"Jail of Terror" is back and Jim is gone again!
It is that time of year when Jim is MIA at winery on Sand Hollow. But Cindy is keeping the doors open once again while Jim plays with demented zombies and vintage clowns at the Historic Licking County Jail in downtown Newark. For those of you that like to get the bejeevers scared out of you.  Stop at the speakeasy first for a juice bracer and then walk across the street for a scare you will never forget! For more details go to the Jail of Terror  website.  Check out this video too!
