The Speakeasy Adventure- A Tipsy Trip Through History
Welcome! Walk with us through Midtown New York as we retrace the immigrant progress toward the American Dream during Prohibition.

Also, we’ll explore the catalysts behind Prohibition and focus on the women of the Gilded Age, and the movement that gave rise to an oil king. To round off our journey together, we'll take you around the edge of Times Square and finally we’ll discuss the demise of Prohibition over cocktails at our last venue stop.

These are places that we frequent and where we eat often and want to share them with you! We'll also share more information about the neighborhood, vendors and cuisines so you can learn more along with getting a great meal.

Art as Divination- intuit inner guidance through painting
Explore painting as a means for therapeutic inner work and divining the subconscious with visionary artist Sfera Louis. Align with the loveliest & loftiest visions for yourself and the whole of humanity & earth in this pivotal time, through art. Meet with others on a similar path; the desire to BE the change we wish to see in the world; expanding collective consciousness through present moment awareness, excavating inner truths, transmuting what needs to be alchemized, and finding the north star of the compass of your true self. Sfera invites you to her beautiful light-filled art studio, a true sanctuary, to immerse yourself into a creative flow using paint to divine your path. She provides supplies & guidance, all you need to do is show up. A context of radical wholeness is the ground in which we'll plant our thought garden. As within, so without.. Tending to our own being is the only activism we have real power in. Formerly a traditional activist, in light of the political expression of the world of 2020, Sfera turned inward, using the tools gleaned from a lifetime of art to hone her skills for navigating the turbulent waters of our time. Aligning oneself, then letting go & trusting the process works for art as well as any manifestation. Mani = hand... Like Harold and his Purple Crayon we too can paint our way through this wild adventure of life & collective healing.

Your guide to New York

Where do locals hang out in New York City?

In a city with 8 million people, this isn’t a place where tourists and locals divide their time. Manhattan (or the City) is home to some of the world’s biggest attractions — Times Square, the MOMA, the Met, Wall Street, you name it — but it is also where many New Yorkers live, work, and go out. To feel more in the know, tour Chinatown through its food and markets before heading to Upper Manhattan for jazz and African-American history in Harlem, or a fortune telling over Turkish coffee in the East Village. And when it comes to classic New York City things to do, you can't go wrong with a rooftop bar, or sunset cruises via ferry or water taxi, to see the Statue of Liberty or the Empire State Building from unique vantage points. These NYC icons never get old, even for locals.

However, for a real NYC experience, embrace the diverse art, food, and history of the boroughs outside of the city: Brooklyn, Queens, the Bronx, and Staten Island. Whether you spend your day at a park, in a museum in Midtown, or out shopping for designer threads at thrift stores in Williamsburg, don’t feel like you have to get caught up in a New York minute. Stop to enjoy your surroundings, and make time for people watching.


Where do locals eat in New York City?

It’s the communities and neighborhoods within the five boroughs that define the culture and energy of this iconic metropolis, and that story is best told through food. Preferably at brunch.

In the Bronx, find some of the best pizzas and pastas outside of Rome in what many New Yorkers consider the city’s true Little Italy. Meanwhile, in nearby Queens, you can travel the world in an afternoon by sampling Southeast Asian bites, Latin American dishes, and plenty of other cuisines in areas such as the Jackson Heights neighborhood.

With so many things to try, a food walking tour with a local guide can be a great way to be sure you don’t miss any of the best bites.


What are the best ways to escape New York City for a day?

When you need a break from the city action, a day trip out of New York City can lead you to other parts of the Empire State and beyond. One of the most popular NYC day trips is a drive to the Hudson Valley and the Catskills for plenty of outdoor activities such as hiking, but it’s also a must-do for food lovers and antique hunters. For those looking for a coastal calm, make the trip to Greenport, Long Island, where delicious oysters, great wine, and beach time are the only requirements for your visit.
