The Fourth Garrideb will hold its Numismatic Friends of Sherlock Holmes dinner at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, August 2, 2017 during this year’s American Numismatic Association’s World’s Fair of Money in Denver. Site of this year’s dinner will be the Blake Street Vault, located at 1526 Blake Street in lower downtown Denver.

The Blake Street Vault will be the site of the Numismatic Friends of Sherlock Holmes Dinner this August.

The Blake Street Vault is in a building erected in 1863, making it one of the oldest buildings in Denver. The restuarant features historic brick, tin ceilings, copper-topped bar, large wooden timbers, ghosts, and murals of a time long past. The vault in the basement is rumored to be haunted. For those who care to partake in “adult beverages,” the bar specializes in the cocktail known as a Moscow Mule and also carries a large selection of Colorado made whiskies. Menu items range is price from $11 to $30 and features Rocky Mountain Oysters for our braver attendees.

Attendees will order off the menu and be responsible for their own menu/bar tabs. We are hoping for a larger crowd this year, as we are inviting the local group of Sherlockians to join us for good food, drink and conversation. There is no program during this event, and a few toasts will be offered. As has become a tradition, a souvenir will be issued to commemorate this entertaining event.

We do ask that you RSVP at your earliest convenience, but no later than Monday, July 31, in order to coordinate with the restaurant. You can RSVP HERE.

We hope you can join us!
