Wineries are Magical
New Menu Items!
The 5 cheese pizza and toppings will now be challenged for top billing. Starting Friday March 2nd Capone's Warm Nuts and Cynthia's Charms will be offered at both the Speakeasy and Winery on Sand Hollow. I would like to share with you what each of those menu items are but prefer to just let your imagination run rampant. Stop in and try them both they are delectable. 
Live Music on Friday's with Greg Greyson!
Greg Greyson Hartz, professionally known as JazzHat is now performing under his own name.  Greg Greyson will continue to share the same unique blend of soft rock that has entertained audiences from Chicago to Nashville.  We caught up with Greyson in the studio and he had this to say,  
"I've had a lot of fun with the JazzHat persona.  But I think for some it was a barrier to the music, expecting me to play straight up jazz (which I don't).  Performing as Greg Greyson will let me connect more directly with my audience".  
Greyson plays original music straight from the heart and captures powerful emotional experiences we all share."   Stop by The Speakeasy Friday 7- 9:30pm to hear Greyson and enjoy a glass of Sand Hollow's finest!    
Happy Hour Thursday, Friday & Saturday at Speakeasy!
Yes it is true between 4:30 and 7:30 on Thursday, Friday and Saturday all food items will be 10% off and wine tall pours will be at short pour prices! As a former happy hour consumer specialist,  buying futures are not allowed. 
Major Renovations Updates in the Neighborhood
New opening appearing in building renovation. By the end of the month you will be able to see Sand Hollow Speakeasy and the iconic Lil Bear grocery store like you have never imagined. These changes have been a long time in coming and will bring a new look and possibilities for both. As progress proceeds we  will share photos with you. Exciting times in downtown Newark.
Speakeasy new password is "Maryland"
The last password was "temperance". Two big groups in support of Prohibition were the 'Women's Christian Temperance Union' and Anti Saloon League. 

These groups were fundamental in raising support for Prohibition from their creations. The 'Women's Christian Temperance Union' in 1873 and the 'Anti-Saloon League' in 1893. They published numerous cartoons, posters and leaflets across the country.

When coming to the speakeasy go to the door that has "Mr. Speaks Office" knock and give the current password "Maryland" when the peek door opens. 
Trip Advisor Website rates Sand Hollow Winery!
This past week a couple from out of town came to visit the winery. As usual I asked them how they heard about us. Typical answers are; customer recommendation, road sign or a google search pop up. They found us on Tripadvisor.com looking for places in the area to go and the winery was came up third recommended site to visit. That was nice but I wanted to know who was one and two! He pulled up the site on his phone to show me. Well,,,there is little chance the winery is going to surpass one and two anytime soon. Considering they both have been around for quite sometime. Let me add I'm OK with being ranked behind them.
