Third Thursday: Talk German Americans and WWI

October 18, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

$4 – $5

With the outbreak of WWI, German-Americans experienced a backlash of ethnic discrimination that led to a great shift in cultural identity. As once respected citizens and leaders in their communities, Germans now had to defend their patriotism and
production. Threatening to take all that away are the temperance societies with a firm grasp in Ohio… leading Washington County to become dry in the early 20th century. But why are we telling you all of this when you can learn for yourself during this fun bar crawl in historic downtown Marietta? Oh, and don’t forget you’ll be drinking for a good cause. This event serves as a fundraiser for both The Castle & Marietta Main Street. Cheers!

Food His tory War Fare
The First World War affected all aspects of
American culture, especially our approach to
cooking and food, some of which still lingers 100
years later. “Save the Wheat!” drives, “Meatless
Mondays”, and victory gardens led to the acceptance of innovative
recipes coming out of necessity. While “Over There” American
Doughboys experienced new food culture which they brought back to
the states. This “War Fare” will be our inspiration for a three course
menu exploring the history of WWI accompanied by presentations
highlighting Washington County in WWI and the research behind
this meal.
Cost & Location To Be Announced. Check our website for updates.
