Here’s a conversation not to miss ~ Bar Historians in Conversation: McSorley’s and Julius’ on March 16th, hosted by the Greenwich Village Society for Historic Preservation and The Salmagundi Club.

Can’t say it better than the Facebook Event:

“Hoist a pint with bar historians Tom Bernardin of Julius’ and Bill Wander of McSorley’s, two storied Village bars founded in the mid-1800s.

Tom and Bill are holders of bar histories spanning generations. Their taverns have seen sawdust on the floors and horses waiting outside to surviving prohibition, sip ins, opening up to women and LGBTQ folks, and much more.

With humor and curiosity, Tom and Bill will share and compare some of the juicy (and boozy) details of these establishments and their incredible photo collections. They will delve into what they’ve learned, people they’ve met, and the bars’ roles in shaping their neighborhoods, while also illuminating the particularities of being bar historians.”

Bar Historians in Conversation: McSorley’s and Julius’ will be held on Friday, March 16th from 6:30-8pm at The Salmagundi Club, 47 Fifth Avenue, between 11th-12th Streets.
