Welcome to 221
You have walked into Orange County’s Original
& Legendary Speakeasy. Just a word to the wise,
the year is 1928. Please do not believe rumors to
the contrary. The US Government has inexplicably
banned the production and sale of alcohol. I am
not comfortable with this policy and believe that
the American working stiff has a right to enjoy a
libation without the very government that we fund
having any say in the matter. In return for this
great public service I am providing here, I ask one
thing; please shut your mouth about our little
operation here. We want to continue to provide
this great venue with as little as possible kicked
backed to the politicians, many of
whom are here tonight pretending to not be seen.
Gotta love the system!
Anyway, let me explain a few things:
• The gaming is for fun & bragging rights.
Only an idiot would think otherwise
The rules of the games are what the
dealers describe. Arguing a rule or
decision will land you on the other side
of the curtain quickly. Make sure to
cash in all of your chips at the cage
before leaving. Your chip totals are
viewable on the website daily and
weekly on the facebook & twitter pages.
• Out of chips? Too bad! I have heard
that some of our staff have tremend-
ously soft shoulders to cry on. They
may be of some assistance in these
matters. You cannot buy chips how-
ever because they are valueless.
Believe me... I wish that you could!
• The cocktails are amazing and hand-
crafted. Based on the care & love that
goes into each drink, they may take a
few minutes longer than you are used
to. Be patient! They are worth the wait!
If you want your drink faster, order a beer!
If you want something not shown
on this menu, just ask your server. If we
have the ingredients, we’ll make it.
• I ask that you be respectful when in my
joint. Watch your mouth. That goes for
the broads too.
• We dress how you should dress. We
play the music of our era. We hope our
keen fashion sense rubs off on you but
don’t feel bad if it doesn’t. We under-
stand that many of you believe to be
from the future. I’m not sure what the
hell is wrong with you but please keep
your futuristic opinions private. Do not
waste your time requesting songs. We
cannot accommodate them.
Thank you for reading all this stuff. You’ve just wasted
a lot of time that could’ve been spent drinking!
At least you now know the deal.
Have fun here and enjoy the journey back to a better
time. It is our honor to have you here and we hope
to see you often.
