It's not often we get to sip on craft cocktails and play dress-up. But we take every chance we get. Thanks to Dallas Heritage Village, we had a ball at the first-ever History With a Twist: A Celebration of the American Cocktail fundraiser. 

The evening took us back to a time when fringed dresses were the norm, and drinking was always on the agenda. To complement the theme, Prohibition-style cocktails — courtesy of mixologist Michael Martensen — were flowing like wine throughout the night.  

Snazzy-looking guests — including Barbara and Jim McDermott, Anna and Jim Mitchell, Ann McGovern, Jade Graves, Scott Smith, Elsa Nelson, Christine and Eric Hall, Jen and Tony Campiti, and Lacy and Kelley Winsor — strolled through the village's historical grounds as they sipped Martensen's specialty drinks and savored small bites. 

During the night, attendees snapped pictures in the photo booth and learned old-school moves from Rhythm Room dance instructors. But perhaps more important, with generous bids in the silent auction, they helped raise big bucks for the hands-on history museum that educates citizens about life in Dallas from 1840-1910. 

"This event is a step outside the box for Dallas Heritage Village," said Don Baynham, chairman of the board. "And everyone had a great time."
