OTR's German Serial Killer

Anna Marie was a party girl. She was fun, attractive, attentive to men at the bar, and a cold-blooded killer. It was not until she was arrested for robbery in Colorado that Cincinnati police began to realize that she was responsible for the deaths of several local men. We unwind this devious tale over 4-courses with wine pairings. Although the dishes are inspired by the era of Hahn's crimes, we promise to leave out the arsenic.

King of the Bootleggers 

Cincinnati's own George Remus is the most fascinating felon from the Prohibition era. A lawyer rather than a thug, he took a unique approach to bootlegging and amassed a fortune. Then things fell apart and he was forced to fight for his life in one of the most sensational murder trials of the 1920s. The rise and fall of George Remus is unwound over a 4-course, '20s inspired meal, paired with Prohibition-era cocktails made with George Remus brand whiskeys. All-inclusive.
