Love and death have inspired artists, writers, and philosophers for millennia. But where do they perfectly intertwine? At a cemetery! You’ll hear tales of the lovesick and the heartbroken, as well as tawdry details of dramatic–and doomed–affairs. You’ll learn about Henry Ward Beecher’s scandalous affair with Elizabeth Tilton; the tragic death of Theodore Roosevelt’s wife on Valentine’s Day; and more.
$5/Free for members. While we can’t actually bring the bar or the drinks to you, we can offer some history on tap! Bring your own beverage–why not try our recommended cocktail of the evening–and raise a glass to the past as we stay connected through our latest series, History Happy Hour.
This History Happy Hour’s suggested drink accompaniment is a Mojito. On the day of the program, participants will receive a recipe along with a Zoom link and access code.
