PDXCW Seminars: Ladies Behind Bars
Saturday, October 22, 2011 from 11:00 AM to 12:00 PM (PDT)
From mold-breaking saloon owners to current day cocktail mavens, women have had a vital, though often overlooked, impact on the evolution of bars and cocktails. The Ladies United for the Preservation of Endangered Cocktails will shed some light on the subject in this seminar as cocktails flow. We’ll sketch, in broad strokes, the alcohol-influenced social changes that began with the antebellum Temperance movement, culminated during Prohibition, and had ripple effects through WWII and beyond. With the spirit and wit specific to lady barkeeps, we plan to raise a glass (or several) to the women that have influenced cocktail history.
