Welcome back to another "A Sin and A Secret." Mix yourself a drink based on a colonial recipe and then curl with a completely true, completely salacious story. Enjoy a new #ASinAndASecret post every week. Read more in the series here.



Gaming the Law: Gambling Despite Laws Against It in Early America


We're switching up this week's A Sin and A Secret to rebroadcast a lecture on gambling in colonial America by Dr. Kenneth Cohen, PhD, Curator of American Culture at the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History. This lecture was originally given on Feb 24, 2018 as part of our annual winter lecture series.

Mark Your Calendars: Drinks with the Director


Instead of a drink recipe this week, save the date for Drinks with the Director on Saturday, July 4, 12:30 - 2:30pm. Rod Cofield, London Town's executive director, will play bartender, serving up punch and cider while sharing the important role of taverns in the 17th and 18th centuries. Enjoy a relaxed afternoon of drinks and conversation on taverns, archaeology, and early America. Learn more and sign up today.
