NYE Speakeasy Ball - Deco Fortress

If you're a Preservationist, appreciate Art Deco, love architectural details, or are enamored with Vintage Style the place to be this New Years Eve is at the Speakeasy Ball. Sarah Jane and the Blue Notes will be preforming along with Miss Jubilee.

The Deco Fortress is a massive building that Sarah Jane bought a couple of decades back and has been restoring by hand. Mostly her hands. I've a vague memory of black paint covering walls with mosaic tiles and Sarah Jane cautiously removing the paint. When the Sears on Grand went down Sarah J was there buying the light fixtures which are now installed on the first floor. She has salvaged Vitrolite for decades and created a Deco motif for her bathroom. When the drugstore on Grand and Hartford was 'remodeled' Sarah J bought doors and other pieces and installed them into the Deco Fortress. And then there's the infamous Hadley-Dean building score.

It's an understatement to claim she has vision because the woman - and her spouse - are a design and restoration force.
