A Kansas Gilded Age Dinner: Featuring Recipes from the Time of J.B. Watkins


Thursday, October 18, 2018 - 18:00


The Eldridge Hotel, 701 Massachusetts St., Lawrence

Description: The Watkins and the historic Eldridge Hotel invite you to experience the splendor and fine dining of the Gilded Age. Join us at The Eldridge on October 18 for a meal taken straight out of menus of the 1880s—when entrepreneur J.B. Watkins lived at the hotel and built his business empire. The $75 ticket price includes mixed cocktails, food, tax, gratuity, and a presentation by local historian Cindy Higgins. Full tables for eight are available for $600. A cash bar for wine and beer is also available. A portion of proceeds will benefit Watkins exhibits and events. To RSVP, visit the Watkins or call us at (785) 841-4109. Advance payment recommended.
