Come join in celebrating the colorful history of the Wai Wera Hotel in Benton Hot Springs on October 15, 2016. This is where the legend lives and hotel stories come alive. The cost is just $75 per person. Tickets are limited so call now to reserve yours at (760) 933-2287.

Spend an enchanting afternoon and evening of oral history presentations reliving the prominence of the Wai Wera Hotel from 1906-48. Experience the stories and drama of the people who operated and stayed at the hotel.

Start with a view of the lobby and stairs leading to the second floor rooms, which were closed to the public in the late 1940s and not reopened for over 60 years.

Enjoy appetizers and drinks from the 20s, dinner created from 30s recipes, and dessert from the forties — assuming you have the proper “speak-easy” code.

End the evening dancing under the stars with music from the decades of the Wai Wera Hotel. Dress in period attire and come mingle with the legends.
