CodeBar Live Show 7– Kryptos, it means hidden.


Welcome everyone to ‘Live from the CodeBar’ recorded from the code themed bar of Fenwood Manor. I am your guide on this adventure, Rob. On this show I am going to talk to you about  the mysterious sculpture Kryptos that stands outside the CIA headquarters building in Langley, Virginia. The sculpture by artist Jim Sanborn has four encrypted messages, which as of now only three have been decoded. There is one other problem with this sculpture, because it is on CIA property, very few people (outside of the intelligence community) are able to view it!

The Kryptos

Ingredients 

  1.  2oz Jack Daniels
  2.  Bunderberg Ginger Beer
  3.  Ice
  4.  ?Can you name the third ingredient?
