Dallas Heritage Village presents 2017 History with a Twist
Dallas Heritage Village adds a new twist to the museum’s spring fundraiser with Top Chef All-Star Tiffany Derry and craft cocktail scene guru Charlie Papaceno of Industry Alley at the 5th Annual History with a Twist. Derry will be preparing southern comfort food, 1940s style, for the event, which will also feature music by The Singapore Slingers and historically inspired cocktails by Charlie Papaceno. History with a Twist raises important proceeds to support learning opportunities for students and adults at Dallas Heritage Village.
Guests will step back into the 1940s as they stroll down Dallas Heritage Village’s historic Main Street sampling four cocktail creations of Papaceno’s (the Singapore Sling; Moscow Mule; Maime Taylor; and Rusty Nail) at numerous cocktail stations located in historic buildings as well as Derry’s creations. Additionally, beer and wine will be available. There will be a vintage car show, jazz music provided by the Singapore Slingers, and dance lessons by Elaine Hewlett, of the Rhythm Room. Guests are encouraged to come in their own vintage attire from the 1940s. A selection of costume items will be for sale that evening for those who want to accessorize as well as a photo booth to document the occasion. In the General Store, guests may explore a special exhibit featuring a sampling of some rare/unique items in the Village’s collection not currently on public display.
