  • Profs & Pints: Speaking of Speakeasies

    23
    Apr 2018
    Monday
    - 6:00pm -

    Profs & Pints: Speaking of Speakeasies
    Profs and Pints presents: “Speaking of Speakeasies,” a discussion of prohibition and its boozy effects, with Allen Pietrobon, adjunct professor of modern American history at American University and visiting professor at Trinity Washington University.

    The 1920 Constitutional amendment prohibiting the consumption of alcohol was supposed to solve some of the nation’s most pressing social issues, including alcoholism, childhood malnutrition, and domestic violence. Instead, it uncorked a vibrant cultural rebellion and a host of new social problems, with its heady effects still felt today. Attempts to circumvent or profit from Prohibition gave crime new meaning, provoking a 12-year-long gang war that made Al Capone a household name. Women became more liberated, a sexual revolution got underway, and jazz transformed from an underground expression of the African American experience into the soundtrack of a new generation. Even the president himself drank in violation of the law.

    What role had alcohol played in American life leading up to prohibition? How had it become such a problem that the U.S. banned all intoxicating beverages? Why did the ban fail so spectacularly? How did this period change America? As you take in the answers, the bar will serve classic cocktails from the roaring twenties, including Gin Rickeys, Old Fashioneds, and Bees’ Knees.

    (Tickets $10 in advance and $12 at the door.)

  • Profs & Pints: Pets of the Presidents

    29
    Apr 2018
    Sunday
    - 6:00pm -

    Profs and Pints presents: “Pets of the Presidents,” with Edward Lengel, special adviser to the White House Historical Association, former professor at the University of Virginia, and author of books such as General George Washington: A Military Life.

    A delightful, and sometimes strange, menagerie has inhabited the White House since its construction in 1800. Thomas Jefferson kept bear cubs and a mockingbird. John Quincy Adams kept an alligator in the East Room. Andrew Johnson entertained mice. Abraham Lincoln and Theodore Roosevelts children brought ponies into the house.

    The real stars, however, have always been dogs and cats: From Ulysses Grants Newfoundland, Faithful, to FDRs Scottish Terrier, Fala, and the Siamese Cats that roamed the Executive Mansion during the Rutherford B. Hayes and Gerald Ford administrations.

    Join White House historian and storyteller Edward Lengel as he chronicles the exciting–and often hilarious–history of the nation’s “first pets.” You’ll learn how a horse named Old Whitey charmed Washington D.C., how a dog named Pete tore the pants off a French ambassador, and how even the most skilled politicians have literally faced the risk of “stepping in it.”

    (Tickets $10 in advance and $12 at the door.)
