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.



Women and Taverns in Colonial Maryland

We're again switching up this week's A Sin and A Secret to rebroadcast a lecture on women and tavern culture given by Rod Cofield, Executive Director at Historic London Town and Gardens (You should also check out Rod's excellent Tavern Tales series!)


This lecture was originally given on February 3, 2018 as part of our annual winter lecture series.

Sign Up Today! Colonial Cocktails: Bounce & Bumbo

Instead of a drink recipe this week, sign up today for Colonial Cocktails: Bounce & Bumbo on Thursday, July 23, 2020, 6:30pm.


From punches to bounces, syllabubs to juleps, colonists imbibed a wide variety of alcoholic beverages. At Colonial Cocktails, you’ll get to make and enjoy two historical drinks and learn about colonial tavern culture. This session will explore Bounce, a pleasant concoction of fruit-steeped brandy, and Bumbo, a common rum punch. 

For the safety of participants and staff, this event will be held outside with appropriate distancing, group sizes, and cleaning in accordance with CDC and local guidance.
