SIMSBURY — On Saturday, March 28, from 8 to 10 p.m., the Storyteller’s Cottage will host An Unfortunate Evening: A Lemony Snicket Party. Steampunk costume is encouraged but not required according to a release from the Cottage. Tickets are $30 and can be purchased at www.storytellerscottage.com/bookings-checkout/an-unfortunate-evening
The Storyteller’s Cottage will be transformed into the VFD Headquarters from A Series of Unfortunate Events, by Lemony Snicket. Guests can have their fortunes told in Madame Lulu’s Fortune Telling Tent, explore Uncle Monty’s eccentric library, take photos in the 667 Dark Avenue penthouse apartment (if their outfits are “in”), make bookish crafts in Aunt Josephine’s corner, and try to find the very important Sugar Bowl with clues left behind by the Baudelaire orphans. There will also be snacks available at the Anxious Clown Café.
The Storyteller’s Cottage is located in a vintage Victorian house in the center of historic Simsbury, and hosts all manner of immersive literary events throughout the year, including Agatha Christie inspired live murder mystery parties, Great Gatsby themed Jazz Supper Clubs, fascinating close-up illusions at Fine Parlor Magic nights, a Literary Dinner Party series on select evenings at midnight, and more.
The Storyteller’s Cottage is located at 750 Hopmeadow Street in Simsbury. Parking for The Storyteller’s Cottage is free, and is available on the street in front of the building, and in the Fiddler’s Green parking lot on Wilcox Street (behind the house).
