Immerse yourself in the Gilded Age splendor of the Driehaus Museum (which was named a favorite cultural destination by Chicago’s concierge for 2018) at one of these two, special events happening this weekend.
A Toast to the Gilded Age: The Speakeasy
Friday, March 9, 7:15 p.m. – 10 p.m.: History, music, and cocktails merge to create a unique experience in an unforgettable space. Explore the history of the Speakeasy and the Prohibition-era. Then taste a variety of cocktails while enjoying music and light hors-d’oeuvres. Guests must be 21 and older.
Book Club: The Awakening by Kate Chopin
(Saturday, March 10, 11 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.): The Driehaus Museum will honor Women’s History Month by visiting this landmark work of early feminism. Kate Chopin’s novel shocked her turn-of-the-century readers with a frank portrayal of female marital discontent set in the American South. DePaul University’s Dr. Jennifer Conary will lead the discussion. Refreshments will be served.
