Name: Evening at the Lay House – Beer & Ale Tasting Tavern Night
Date: April 27, 2018
Time: 6:00 PM - 9:30 PM EDT
April 27th: Old Burnside Brewing Company will bring a selection of beer and ale; music by Rick Spencer, Dawn Indermuehle & Chris Dobbs, and historic food pairings by Catering by Selene. Don’t forget the Tavern Games! With gourmet historic food, drinks tastings, music and games, the museum will invite visitors into the Museum’s Lay House property as it is turned into an historic tavern for the evening. Join us for a lively evening of music, tavern games, good food, friends and fun! The evening will include drinking songs and ballads. Catering by Selene is creating a sampling of appetizers/light dinner featuring early 19th-century food. These are based on chef Selene Sweck’s extensive research and collection of early American cookbooks and will comprise such foods as hearty corn chowder, chess pie, and other light bites. As part of the evening, participants will have an opportunity to try their hand at historic games such as Skittles (played with a top that goes through a maze knocking down pins) and Captain’s Mistress, a game with a scandalous sounding name. Programs at 6:00PM and 8:00PM Reservations required, must be 21 or older to attend. $24 CRM members, $29 general public.
