Longtime Pittsburgh restaurant bartender Cecil Usher, beverage director at Richard DeShantz Restaurant Group, created the vintage cocktails guests will enjoy April 13 as Soldiers & Sailors Memorial Hall & Museum hosts a 'Cocktails & Camaraderie' event.

Soldiers & Sailors Memorial Hall & Museum invites visitors to its first museum cocktail night of 2018, with a "Cocktails & Camaraderie" event from 6 to 8 p.m. April 13 at the Oakland site.

Through historical re-enactors, era-themed cocktails and light appetizers, guests will experience the sights, sounds and sips of American history.

Four vintage cocktails popular in the mid-century will be prepared from recipes created by Cecil Usher, beverage director at Richard DeShantz Restaurant Group, which includes Meat & Potatoes, Butcher and the Rye, Tako, Pork and Beans. Appetizers will be available while supplies last.

Interactive settings featuring era-specific exhibits will bring to life the Civil War, World War II and the Korea and Vietnam wars, including the popular M.A.S.H. tent, according to a news release.

Participants will see authentic artifacts from those wars and current conflicts from Soldiers & Sailors museum's vault. Docents will provide guided explorations of museum artifacts.

Those attending must be at least 21. Admission is $10, $5 in advance.

Proceeds benefit Soldiers & Sailors Memorial Hall & Museum, Inc.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
