“Frank and Mary Spano (my grandparents) came to this country from Italy during the Roaring Twenties. They opened two speakeasies in the Bronx: one masquerading as a bakery, and the other one a secret nightclub. Shortly after Prohibition ended, Frank was shot and killed on the street in Manhattan. My mother was born on the same day he died.┬áNobody knows why Frank was shot. Nothing was known about the killer, his motive, or a trial. Mary Spano took these secrets to her grave.” – Cynthia von Buhler

This is an immersive event. Each guest will be assigned a name and role. We encourage you to explore. Unlocked doors (or revolving bookshelves) should be entered. Ignore the advice your parents gave you as children, be nosy and talk to strangers.

Time is warped here; it is between 1933 (prohibition-era) – 1935.

A few days before the event you will receive three emails from Frank Spano’s granddaughter, Cynthia von Buhler, with the secret password, instructions and evidence.

In order to have the best possible experience we recommend that you read the evidence Cynthia sends you before you show up.
