Enjoy a drink and have a think! At Culture & Cocktails — a lecture program at
the Miller House Museum —  a historical topic is tackled with the help of a
little liquid fortitude.

In April, they're celebrating the historical elements of April Fool's Day! Dr.
Emilie Amt of Hood College will be discussing some faked and forged documents
she has encountered over the course of her career. Learn more about the
stories behind these historical hoaxes and how they were — from
medieval English manuscripts to slave narratives right here in the Cumberland

The specialty drink will be: The Not Manhattan! They've sneakily swapped out
some of the Manhattan's classic ingredients. Sip for yourself and see if you
can tell how they've "forged" this classic!

Your ticket price will include your first drink, and refills will be
available for a small fee. This event is for adults ages 21 and older,
