Friends Who Are Going
Event description

Description

In partnership with Quaker City Mercantile, the Young Friends of HSP invite you to an evening of celebration of inebriation as we honor Steven Grasse, author of Colonial Spirits: A Toast to Our Drunken History (2016).

The history of America's alcohol goes back to the beginning of the nation. Could you imagine a time when beer was healthier to drink than water? Come travel back in time as we learn and laugh about the many facets of drinking culture.

Once guests have enjoyed a cocktail or two, all are invited to share their favorite piece of history, story-slam style, for the chance to win a Quaker City Mercantile gift basket.

Your ticket includes an open bar, hors d’oeuvres, and a one-night document display featuring Philadelphians through the centuries getting tipsy, buzzed, and maybe a little drunk.

Raffle tickets will be available for $5 for one, $20 for five. Prizes include items from Philadelphia Phillies, Lowes Hotel, Philadelphia Independents, Free Library of Philadelphia, Urban Axes, RowZone Indoor Rowing & Fitness Studio, and more!
