Alice Zalik is creating the A Case of Identity Pillow.
  This is the preliminary shot of the A Case of Identity pillow front.  The color scheme is based first on Holmes' gold snuff box; Ms. Sutherland wears a black jacket with black beads and jet ornaments; Mr. Windibank works for claret importers; and the plot's fraud is a grey area not covered by law.  The beads will include genuine amethyst, no genuine gold, jet and hematite of various sizes and shapes and among the charms are a whip and a typewriter.  
A Case of Identity Pillow
The raffle will be held as usual. The winner's pillow will be delivered to them shortly thereafter.

The raffle tickets are $5 each and worth every penny to own this creative Sherlockian masterpiece.

The presentation of the evening will feature Adam Brooks

Deception in the Modern Age

Adam PortraitJames Windibank

The Master's recounting of A Case of Identity is intriguing not only due to the excellent subterfuge, but also the real undertones that are present in the modern age.

The motivations of Mr. Windibank have exploded into three modern day avatars: entrepreneurship, entertainment and economy which will be the subject of this talk.

To further illustrate how out of hand these "freakonomics" have become, I will offer one present day example of each aspect paired with my own personal experience.

Of the three personal experiences; two will be true, one will be a lie. The lie to be revealed either by myself, or the good Denizens of the Bar of Gold. 

Don't miss it. The game is afoot!
