Mr. Knight’s Wild Night
March 21, 2015 @ 5:00 pm - 11:00 pmFree – $155
Step back in time to the Roaring 20’s as you start the night with a fun and evocative tour of the Whalehead Club in Historic Corolla, the 21,000 sq. ft. 1925 Art Nouveau masterpiece that served as the winter home of Mr. Knight.
With our exclusive “Taste of the Beach Hoodlums & Hooch Tour”, you’ll see the original Tiffany fixtures and the impressive period furnishings, but you’ll also get an induction into the world of Outlaws on the Outer Banks. Hear the history of the bootleggers and “licker runners” who roamed the local waterways and see what a prohibition-era homemade still really looked like.
After exploring Whalehead and our hidden local history, indulge your inner Gangster with a swinging Prohibition-era party! No password necessary for this Speakeasy! Satisfy all your vices with NC beer, NC wines, and some genuine signature prohibition-era cocktails. Enjoy an appetizing spread of Coastal culinary delights prepared by one of our local favorites, the very well-renowned Chef Wes Stepp of Red Sky Café in Duck. This scrumptious menu will include Oysters Rockefeller, Beef Wellington, Duck Cigarello, local shrimp, local fish, dips, sauces, and artisan breads, all served in glamorous cocktail style. You will not want to miss the other yummy surprises Chef Wes is planning either! Live local music provided by UNC-TV featured band “Aquarium” will keep you dancing into the night. Come as you are or dress to impress in your 1920’s inspired best. Either way, you’re sure to discover why the OBX was the original “what happens here, stays here” location.
Tours from 5:00-7:00pm, bar service starting at 6:30pm, food served 7:30-9:30 and the fun lasts until 11:00pm. 3 beer or wine beverages are included in the General Admission ticket price, and additional spirits are available for purchase.
