In Great Mythologies, the Heroes’ journeys begin with a call to adventure, and they must remove themselves from their typical environment.

Dr. Joseph Campbell describes this other world as a Kingdom Underground, a Profound Dream State.

Tonight, we ask that you run away with us; escape from the mundane, break from orthodoxy; leave your inhibitions behind and enter that other world by the Light of Seven Matchsticks.

"I walked in a pouty stranger with horse blinders on, and emerged three hours later, in euphoria. The charm of this place isn’t just the booze—which was good—or the food—also good. It’s the people.

Perhaps that’s the true secret of The Light of Seven Matchsticks—there’s a night for you here that you may not expect. Now don’t get me wrong, I love a good secret—but some secrets are just better spilt."
