Colonial “cocktails” at the tavern

At this month’s Tavern Talks on Thursday, April 20th from 7 to 9 p.m., come experience the atmosphere of an 18th century tavern! Celebrate the tavern as an integral part of 18th Century culture by discussing the politics of the day with Ben Franklin portrayed by living historian Rob DeVitis.  Try your hand at traditional Colonial games, sample historic tavern fare and more! Featured participants include local 18th Century dance troupe Chadds Ford Dancers and musician Bill Russell with live dulcimer music.

Tavern Talks is a monthly experience (not a lecture!) aimed exclusively for adults 21 and older that focuses on unexplored aspects of early American history and culture. Guests will experience history with hands-on activities, food and drink tastings, demonstrations, and more.

Tavern Talks takes place at the Chadds Ford Historical Society’s Barns Brinton House, an historic 1714 tavern, located next to the Chaddsford Winery at 630 Baltimore Pike. Admission is $20 for non-members and $15 for members. Tickets must be purchased in advance over the phone, in person or online as space is limited. All attendees must be 21 and older.
