City Tavern The Inspiration Behind Historical Dinner

Friday night the Owl Creek Gazette will partner with Adam Brothers Music & Coffeehouse to present a colonial themed historical dinner. The evening will also feature Revolutionary War-era music.

Jan Stover, of the Owl Creek Gazette, told WGEL the event was inspired by “The City Tavern” cookbook by Chef Walter Staib.

“The City Tavern cookbook is actually named for the City Tavern that exists in Philadelphia. It’s an active, functional restaurant, pub, meeting place. It was established during the Revolutionary War era. So our founding fathers actually ate and dined and, I imagine, did quite a bit of debating there as well.

“We love history here at the Owl Creek Gazette, we talk about traditional American values, and the founding fathers’ principals, and we love good food and conversation and we just thought it would be an event we would want to share with the public.”

The “Taste of History” dinner begins Friday at 7:00 p.m. at Adam Brothers Music & Coffeehouse. Tickets to the event are $25 per person or $45 per couple and may be purchased at Adam Brothers or the Owl Creek Gazette office, both located on Second Street in Greenville.

Tickets must be purchased by Wednesday, October 15.
