DuBard School Speakeasy

The Details


WHEN AND WHERE

Shhh!!! The hobnobbin' begins Friday, October 6, 2017 at 7:00 p.m. and, if we don't get raided by the fuzz, we'll be doing the Charleston until 10:00 p.m. The festivities will be in the Thad Cochran Center on the campus of Southern Miss. Point and click right here for a map of parking and where you will enter.


WHAT CAN GUESTS EXPECT?

A whole lot of fun for a good cause! The event features a delectable array of 1920's inspired fare, Prohibition-era 'hooch', live jivin' jazz with a dance floor to tap your toes, and an evening you won't soon forget.


After purchasing your ticket, you'll be given a password and specific instructions on how to enter the joint so we don't get raided by the fuzz. The start of the event will be held under the guise of a DuBard School Community Meeting, so we appreciate your discretion.


IS IT REALLY A SECRET EVENT?

No, it's all just fun and games, but we thought it would be fun to bring a new themed event to the area for our guests and supporters to enjoy.


Why a Speakeasy

In addition to being a type of event different than any other in our area, it's a fun play on words. While you're enjoying a 1920's 'Speakeasy' atmosphere, we're celebrating giving the gift of language and our mission to help children 'speak easy'.


What is a speakeasy

Speakeasies were developed in the 1920's during the prohibition era. To hide from the police, speakeasies were underground clubs where guests had to be "members" to attend, needed a password to enter and were asked to "speak easy" as to not garner attraction from unwanted visitors. They've long since vanished, but if you're lucky enough, you'll find some in large cities that still follow the speakeasy code.
