On Sunday the 30th, Ex Fabula hosted its first ever Secret Fabula event at Bryant’s Cocktail Lounge. The sold out event was hosted by the effervescent Leah Delaney.
Kyle Cherek kicked off the evening sharing tidbits on the establishment’s history and a personal tale of a blind date gone sour. Proprietor John Dye reminisced about a first date, good times past and the significance of Bryant’s in his life. Living legend and former cocktail waitress Shirley Lafferty enlightened the crowd on the benefits of amber lighting and the importance of using proper language. Emcee Leah Delaney dished on witnessing stolen moments and heartbreak. Some attendees even stepped up to share memories of their first Bryant’s experience: Becca Segal & friend’s encounter with a stray magician, Donte McFadden’s awesome drink and good times with friends, employee Jessica Shell’s ghost encounter and being creeped out by the upstairs area and Hanna Gichard nodding off after hours of traveling.
Congratulations to raffle winner Angela Dresen, who will have Bryant’s April Drink of the Month named after her, as well as Mark Teske, who won the Bryant’s Trivia contest. A big thanks you to our storytellers for coming out and sharing their personal stories & memories of Bryant’s. And finally a gigantic thank you to our members and to our lovely host, Bryant’s Cocktail Lounge and its staff.
