Amulet- An ornament or small piece of jewelry thought to give protection against evil, anger or disease, power for stirring creative juices for new ideas, and bringing love and hope to a dreary life.

Entering our dome, our guests are invited to emboss letters, numbers, and symbols onto a brass plate (aka dog tag) or a brass disc; creating an Amulet to carry with them around their neck, or perhaps to gift to another.

Awkward & Tawdry Lounge

Many years ago, a snake oil salesman by the name Dr. LeTawdry traveled the swamps of Louisiana in search of fabled elixirs. Many of his potions were wildly successful, but it was his mixture for lovesickness that backfired and lead to tragedy: awkward hugs.

Now, Dr. LeTawdry urges you to come to Awkward and Tawdry Lounge to find the cure! He offers many treatments: moving pictures, musical sing-alongs, breakfast with questionable cartoons, easy listening and lemonade, dancing, drinking and overall merriment.
