Annual Meeting Lecture: City of Booze Shoulders

Sunday, January 27, 2019
2:00 - 3:30 p.m.
Free; Call or email the Museum to reserve a seat.

Chicago, that toddling - and tippling - town.  Our world class metropolis has been a malt-loving mecca since its beginnings and, if it weren't for beer and booze, Chicago wouldn't be here. From foundation to fires and fairs, alcohol has played a pivotal role in the development and evolution of our city.  Join historian Liz Garibay as she leads a conversation about how alcohol helped shape Chicago. Garibay is founder of the Chicago Brewseum and curator of the Field Museum exhibit “Brewing Up Chicago.” Her talk will be preceded by a brief annual meeting of the Wilmette Historical Society. Seating is limited; call (847) 853-7666 or email museum@wilmette.com to reserve your place.
