Tavern Talks 2017 and "Chocolate and Courtship"
The Chadds Ford Historical Society's Tavern Talks will kick off its 2017 season on Thursday, February 16th from 7-9 p.m. with "Chocolate and Courtship". If you are looking to bring dating back to the basics-300-year-old basics-then you will not want to miss out!

Watch chocolate-making demonstrations by Mars' American Heritage Chocolate, learn how to compose a love letter from a local calligrapher, sample edible "aphrodisiacs" and more! A special wine tasting by Chaddsford Winery will also be provided.

Tavern Talks is a monthly experience (not a lecture!) aimed exclusively for adults 21 and older that focuses on unexplored aspects of early American history and culture. Guests will experience history with hands-on activities, food and drink tastings, demonstrations, and more.

Tavern Talks takes place at the Chadds Ford Historical Society's Barns Brinton House, an historic 1714 tavern, located next to the Chaddsford Winery at 630 Baltimore Pike. Admission is $20 for non-members and $15 for members. Tickets must be purchased in advance over the phone, in person or online as space is limited. All attendees must be 21 and older.

Other topics in the 2017 Tavern Talks lineup include:

  • March 23 - Colonial "Cocktails"
  • April 20 - Tavern Night
  • May 18 - Spy Games
  • June 9 - Quack-ing Up! (18th Century Medicine)
