Enjoy vintage cocktails, historical exhibits at Soldiers & Sailors '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.
