Orlando’s Eve - 11.16.19
Orlando's Eve is an immersive adventure through the historic streets of Downtown Orlando, highlighted by an interactive theater experience that culminates in a roaring 1920’s party at a secret speakeasy.
The evening features live music, food and drink, as well as burlesque and vaudeville performances. Live music and dancing with Brown Bag Brass Band’s Sweet & Hot Roaring 20’s Band, and very special performance by Tymisha Harris (from award winning Josephine, a burlesque cabaret dream play) will round out the evening.
Orlando’s Eve and the interactive performances are being directed by Christian Kelty of the award winning interactive show and longtime Orlando staple Joe’s NYC Bar.
The evening begins at the Downtown Orange County Regional History Center where you will pick up clues and follow to historic locations around downtown. The History Center will be closed to the general public, so this is also a great opportunity to step inside and explore a little of Orlando’s History before the adventure starts…
After the History Center, the immersive journey begins as you set off to arrive at different locations around Downtown, meeting historical figures from Orlando's past along the way. Here you will interact with them, and collect clues that will eventually lead you to the ‘secret speakeasy party’. Gather up all of the clues, figure out the location and speakeasy password, and get inside for a fun-filled roaring 20's party featuring a dinner buffet, delicious cocktails, live music and more.
Orlando's Eve is named in honor of Eve Bacon; an author, newspaper woman, and historian of Orlando and Central Florida. Eve Bacon is most remembered as the author of a two-volume history of Orlando, titled Orlando, A Centennial History. Eve Bacon died on December 25, 1978.

The History of the 1920’s Headpiece
Accessories are the best way to complement any bob, lob, or hairstyle! Ladies commonly wore headpieces over their forehead to embellish a sleek bob cut, and people have loved the look ever since then.
The bob haircut style made what we know as its first public appearance in 1915 when ballroom dancer Irene Castle cut her hair to keep it out of her face. Her haircut became dubbed the “Castle Bob” as she was a trendsetter ahead of her time.
Decorative pins and hair ties also complemented bobs to hold hair in place with a stylish look. Folks viewed these simple additions as fashion statements, complementing a woman’s hair and her outfit.
We’re honoring this tradition by helping you create your very own headpiece to stay stylish at the party!
