Reveille: Brunch and WWI

Sunday, Aug. 28 - 9:30 a.m. Museum Café

A Sunday morning walk in Paris during WWI would be a kaleidoscope – men in uniforms from around the world recovering from a convivial night on the town, women sipping café beverages in their Sunday finest. Regardless of their experiences the night before, what bound them was the start of a new day and interest in a good meal. In partnership with The Modernists, delight in a fun morning with boozy light bites and delicious conversation with food writer Liz Cook as she discusses the emergence of the mid-morning meal, the “Paris of the Plains” café culture of the 1920s, and the development of “hangover cure” foods.

Doors open at 9:30 with morning libations. The lecture starts at 10:30 a.m.

Tickets are $15, $10 for members. Registration Required | Museum Café
