Join Dartmouth and CAACO members and guests as we embark on an educational tour of some of Columbus’ most storied saloons.
Taverns cam early to Columbus, refreshing settler and travelers as far back as the 1790s. Join fellow Dartmouth and Cornell alumni as we go barhopping through some of the most historic public houses from the frontier era through Prohibition. Along the way, stories of the historic taverns include Native American captivity, live bears, German “vinegar” brewers, cholera, underground tunnels, a scandalous divorce and even a bordello (imagine that)! Columbus has a lot of tavern history. Let’s drink it in!
There will be time at each tavern to enjoy the atmosphere, drinks and a bite before heading to the next stop. Drinks are not included in the price of the tour, but sparkling narration, historic gossip, an architectural knowledge of the taverns and their environs is cheerfully included.
In your RSVP, please include first and last name and Dartmouth class (if applicable) of each attendee. RSVPs and payments received after July 11th are welcome, but must pay a $10 administration fee. Please register early!
