Around Town Dec. 2

The trains are running on time at the Brandywine River Museum of Art. Despite the Sept. 1 flood that closed the museum for almost three months, the museum is open once again. It opened on Black Friday and, while it’s not a typical Brandywine Christmas, the opening included the Brandywine Railroad, the annual O-gauge train display featuring more than 1,000 pieces on more than 2,000 feet of track. The display is in the second-floor gallery and runs through Jan. 9.

How many know the history of their favorite adult beverage drinks? Those who are interested can get at least some information on Tuesday, Dec. 7 when the Chester County History Center holds a one-hour Zoom session Gilded Age Cocktails: History, Lore, and Recipes from America's Golden Age. The decades following the American Civil War burst with invention―they saw the dawn of the telephone, the motor car, electric lights, the airplane ― but no innovation was more welcome than the beverage heralded as the “cocktail.” This is a pay-as-you-wish event, running from 7-8 p.m. Reserve a spot here.
