Dearly Beloved,

We call you to gather and celebrate the demise of the much-cherished Speakeasy. After well ‘nigh nine years of vibrant mingling, this unique event met a timely death. Yes, timely.

Well loved, well lived, the Speakeasy crosses over to memory.

Do not let her go gently—come, commiserate. Design and build your own funeral hat, disperse your grief and let the past become the past. Funeral cake, coffee, inventive millinery, live music, remembrances, and the last, limited edition Bookmark, created by photographer Stephen Linsley, await.

Guests of Speakeasies past including Edith Abeyta, Noël Alumit, Aimee Bender, Lana Buss, Cake Divas, Jerrod Cardwell, Cat Hair Ensemble, Brendan Constantine, Chris Davidson, Janet Fitch, Joshua Joy Kamensky, Alanna Lin, Joseph F. Mattson, Michael Lewis Miller, Moira Smiley, Marla Smith, Tree People, Rita Williams, Lori Yeghiayan & more will pay their respects. You should too.

The password is, “She was so young.”

Please dress for mourning.
