History in a Glass

October 26, 6 – 9 p.m.

At our History in a Glass series, local craft bars compete for bragging rights by creating libations inspired by Central Florida’s past. On October 26, just in time for Halloween, we’ll look back with a shiver at a murder that shocked Orlando in 1938. The dark tale began in Room 208 of downtown’s San Juan Hotel, then only a block from the Orange County Courthouse (now the History Center.) Hear the unexpected twists and turns of a mesmerizing mystery as you enjoy great food and music, plus three hand-crafted cocktails created by masters from Ravenous Pig, Luke’s Kitchen & Bar, and The Nest Bar. Plan to also join us for the series finale December 14, when the winning bartenders from the first three contests compete for the grand prize.

Admission includes three hand-crafted cocktails and tasty cuisine from a local restaurant. Members: $20, general admission $25. This event is for guests 21 and older.

Doors open at 6 p.m., cocktail competition and drink service starts at 6:30. Advance tickets available here.
