shhhh, don't tell anyone

The husband and I recently went to a little private party at Bourbon and Branch, a speakeasy-inspired establishment. They've really embraced the speakeasy theme: locate yourself in an area that no one would suspect, have people ring the doorbell or knock to get in, make them all give a password and prohibition-inspired rules. It all sounded pretty cool to me, but the reality was a little pretentious.

Sometimes, I like pretentious. I have been known to be influenced/swayed into thinking that what I'm doing is cooler than what you're doing. I just wasn't feeling it at Bourbon and Branch.
Apparently, the thrill of drinking during prohibition in a speakeasy isn't as easy to duplicate as the decor, dress and drinks.
