Wineries are Magical
TONIGHT Annual Downtown Courthouse Christmas Lighting Minus the Courthouse!
Because the courthouse is under construction the annual event has been moved to the Canal Market Plaza and Historic Licking County Jail . Well... that is the official explanation. Rumor has it Mr. Speaks has a lot of connection and it was moved to be closer to the speakeasy for quick and discreet glasses of SHW juice.
Chef Ken will have his signature flat bread pizzas available to pair up with your favorite juice starting at 3:30pm. Seating in the future brothel will be available with prime fireworks viewing in Peggy's Parlor. Unfortunately Peggy won't be available she will be very busy rolling over in her grave.
Winery on Sand Hollow Rd will be dark tonight (Friday, November 25).
The winery in the country will be closed tonight. This is to allow Jim to be with his granddaughter at the Christmas Lighting downtown , keep Cindy and Mr. Speaks happy.  But he will make up for this inconvenience by opening at noon Saturday to provide 50 yard line seating for the OSU Michigan showdown. Hope to see you all at the Speakeasy and Christmas lightning.
Girls Night Out Next Wednesday at Speakeasy
Time for another night out with the girls. Believe it or not we have blown through November and we are at the last Wednesday of the month. Chef Ken's signature flat bread pizzas will be available and piping hot!  Mr. Speaks will be doing second interviews for the opening of the brothel. If you missed last month's interviews there are a few time spots available. But be warned competition is very stiff!
