History After Hours: A Winter’s Ball

Fall into step and join in a traditional Irish ceilidh, a social gathering with dancing and storytelling. Join the dance masters of “In Good Company” and Timoney Irish Dancers to watch (and try!) 18th-century Irish social dances. In Cost of Revolution: The Life and Death of an Irish Soldier, listen to poetry readings from famous Irish poets. In the Cross Keys Café, try samples of Hochstadter’s Slow & Low Old Fashioned cocktail, sip on winter warmers and enjoy Happy Hour specials.
