These are happy hours supplemented by information about what life was like for soldiers during different wars. Tomorrow’s program includes period-appropriate music, rarely displayed military artifacts from the museum’s collection and live actors (from Carnegie Mellon and the University of Pittsburgh) in costume as soldiers interacting with guests.
The conflicts highlighted tomorrow are the Civil War, World War I and the Vietnam War.
The cash bar includes vintage cocktails from those eras, as well as craft beers from locally based ShuBrew. Complimentary appetizers will also be available.
The 21-and-over event is sponsored by Steel City Vets
, a nonprofit supporting post-9/11 veterans.
Cocktails & Camaraderie runs from 6-8 p.m. Thu., April 13. Admission is $5 in advance and $10 at the door. Tickets are available here
Proceeds benefit Soldiers & Sailors Memorial Hall & Museum.
The museum is located at 4141 Fifth Ave., in Oakland.
