Drinking Boston: A History of the City and Its Spirits with author, Stephanie Schorow
Local author and journalist Stephanie Schorow knows that the history of Boston is best viewed through the bottom of a beer mug or cocktail glass. In her new book, Drinking Boston: A History of the City and Its Spirits (Union Park Press, November 2012), Schorow takes readers on a historical pub crawl through Boston as she examines the city's colorful past from its Colonial era taverns to today's hip cocktail lounges. With an eye for detail and a thirst for facts, she opens the doors to the country's first and possibly greatest sports bar, old time saloons, and secretive Prohibition speakeasies with their gut busting gin and homebrew. Illustrated with evocative and historical photos and garnished with classic cocktail recipes, Drinking Boston will quench the thirst of history lovers and cocktail enthusiasts alike.
Today Stephanie comes to Goddard House to read from Drinking Boston, with Q&A and discussion to follow. Non-alcoholic iced tea will be served!
