There's Nothing to See Here...

There's Nothing to See Here...

There's Nothing to See Here...
A traveling, themed, semi-secret speakeasy fundraiser for the Village on Adams.


Join us for Happy Hour Friday, June 26 from 5-8PM at the side room of Manhattan's Restaurant for our second Speakeasy on Adams. The best part about There's Nothing to See Here is that all you have to do is show up and buy drinks. We won't be asking for a cover or donations (although we'd gladly take them). We're just asking you to bring your friends and support community beautification by drinking.

Each There's Nothing to See Here will be at a different location with a different cocktail theme. We'll be announcing the theme and the password the day of the event, so make sure to follow us on Twitter (@villageonadams) and like us on Facebook.
