The agents at International Exports, Ltd. have announced a month-long celebration of furtive Fiftieth Fun.

In celebration of its 50th anniversary the SafeHouse will be offering anniversary drink spy-cials, throwback menu items and Fiftieth Friday parties throughout the month of October.

To start, on Fridays from 10 p.m. to midnight you won't want to miss the weekly Shagadelic Dance Party featuring an undercover happy hour with $2.50 domestic bottles, $3 well drinks $3 wine, Skyy drink specials (with the Skyy spy girls) and special 50th anniversary giveaways throughout the night.

Families can also get in on the fun. Every Tuesday, the SafeHouse will welcome families for 50 percent off kid’s meals, plus there will be special giveaways and missions for junior spies in training.

But, the big bash happens on Wednesday, Oct. 19, when the SafeHouse will open its doors to the public from 8 p.m. to close a special anniversary party celebrating a half century of spy gear, secret agents and special missions. Agents can enjoy happy hour pricing and an appetizer bar all night long.

The festivities will kick off with a special ESPN Radio Broadcast Live from the SafeHouse tomorrow, Friday, Oct. 7, featuring Undercover Double Agents Needles & Dee from ESPN 540am. And you won't want to miss it. After all, they'll be giving up a super secret password that will be good for a buy-one-get-one-free lunch offer.  Listen on the radio or stream it online.

 The SafeHouse will also reveal a top-secret deal or mission on one of its social media channels each day during October. Top operatives at The SafeHouse will post a link to unlock that day’s code word, as well as instructions for the mission. Code words self-destruct daily, so make sure to follow SafeHouse on FacebookInstagramTwitter and Snapchat (@safehouse_mke).

"All we ask from our special agents is an adventurous appetite, stealthy reflexes for special 50th anniversary missions and their most dangerous dance moves for the Friday night happy hours," whispered Agent Diamond, general manager of The SafeHouse.

"We’re thrilled to welcome back our loyal agents, ranging from our most dedicated and tenured spies to our new recruits. Come celebrate 50 years of refuge at Milwaukee’s only SafeHouse!"
