The Curiositorium

Last week Brian and I went to a very intriguing event.

It was called The Curiositorium and was put on by Hendrick's Gin.   We arrived to the address and wandered into a beautiful garden to the sound of a vaudeville band playing.

We were greeted by people in 1800s garb and found ourselves in what appeared to be a whimsical dreamland of odd but pretty displays.  There was a stone well at the front with a leprechaun serving beverages from it, a hot air balloon parked in a corner, a levitating cake stand, a lab of concoctions and libations, and lots of other interesting things.

We were served delicious appetizers and there was an abundance of drinks.  I see that their next stop is San Francisco, so if you're in that area - I recommend you check out their site for more information about it.  It was definitely a quirky, one-of-a-kind experience!


(PS. The winner of the Noonday Giveaway is Kaylie.  Congrats!)

Sounds so fun! It took a little while for me to figure out what this was all about. It must be fun if they come over in Japan. Thanks Dionne, for sharing this.
