Dead Pheasant Rising

Born from the ashes of road kill, the Pleasant Pheasant Society brings you pleasant things and chill happenings. When you’ve had your fill snorting ketamine off frogs, come relax with a teapot cocktail at our evening speakeasy. When the rigors of the night before leave you needing home comforts, join the Pheasants for tea, baked goods, and lawn games. We are the party in the kitchen.
(If you know the truth is out there, spin the conspiracy pinwheel to get red pilled.)
