History in a Glass: To Pajama or Not to Pajama?

History in a Glass is back! Join us for a virtual cocktail class and history lesson, all poured into one good time. Each month our friends at The Woods craft-cocktail bar will create a special libation based on a particular story from Orlando’s past, and our online gathering will feature a demo about how to make the drink, plus a dive into the history that inspired it!

We’ll send you the recipe, so you can create your craft cocktail beforehand to enjoy with the presentation, or follow along at home! Attendees to this virtual event receive $2 off admission to the History Center and a 25 percent discount at The Woods, in the heart of downtown Orlando.

To Pajama or Not to Pajama? Tuesday, April 27, 2021, 6 p.m. (Zoom)

Before we all wore pajamas 24/7, they were the latest rage in the 1920s. The hot new trend of sleepwear was so popular that in 1929, downtown Orlando saw not just one but two controversial pajama parades.
