Let the Ghosts of Hotel Congress Haunt You in The Hidden Room at “The Conjuring”
September 18, 2014
Prepare to have the hairs on the back of your neck stand on end all October long at The Hotel Congress. Famously known as the hotel with history, the nearly century-old building has been privilege to countless unexplained mishaps, strange happenings, and tragedies. Hotel Congress engaged the services of Kenneth Macabre and Medium, Miss Malanga, two experts in the occult, to evoke and expel the spirits fervently haunting the hotel. The Conjuring takes place in The Hidden Room of Congress, which was inexplicably left unharmed after a fire that ravaged the rest of the 3rd floor of the hotel in 1934. Some may say Mr. Macabre and Ms. Malanga merely perform parlor tricks, whereas others claim to have seen the veil between the living and the dead lifted, if only for a moment. You’ll just have to decide for yourself, with the limited engagement of shows open to the dauntlessly curious.
Make no mistake, it’s no coincidence these shows parallel the month devoted to All Hallows Eve and occur in the suite only now open to the public for the first time in 79 years. The supernatural duo perform 45-minute shows at 7:30 and 9 p.m. every Thursday in October to an intimate collection of only thirty guests. Ticket prices are just as phenomenal at $12 in advance and $15 at the door, which can be purchased at The Hotel Congress front desk, online, or via Ouija board.
In addition to peaking behind the curtain of the natural law and order, guests will also receive a private tour of the haunted history of The Hotel Congress. Spooky specialty craft cocktails will be available during the spine-chilling performances, and brave spectators can make a night of it with a reservation for the Maynards Kitchen Wine Dinner.
Guests looking to make an evening of it should opt into reserving a seat at the frighteningly delicious wine dinner before the show only a few screams away at Maynards Kitchen. Executive Chef Jared Scott is planning an exquisite four-course meal with a three-course wine pairing that will no doubt appease the Stomachus demon. Dinner starts promptly at 8 p.m. on Thursday, October 30 and will end with enough time to get you to the specially reserved show at 10:15 p.m. The wine and dine is a terrifyingly good deal at $72 per guest, which includes a ticket to The Conjuring. Contact Maynards Kitchen directly to reserve your spots for dinner and a show.
You never know, one of the conjured may be John Dillinger still incensed by his capture! For more information regarding tickets please visit the Hotel Congress website, and for more information on the unique wine dinner please visit Maynards Kitchen.
