In Pour Taste: A Timeless Cocktail Series

Cocktail enthusiast and history buff? Come to the MAH for our new pop-up series featuring classic drinks mixed with historical anecdotes and stories.

Join us in our garden as mixologists from Front & Cooper specially craft a pair of bespoke cocktails, each named after notable denizens of Santa Cruz’s historic Evergreen Cemetery. In addition, the series features a guest speaker sharing stories from each event’s chosen era or milestone, followed by a history-themed trivia game with prizes. Then, visit the museum to enjoy the current exhibitions on view or grab dinner in Abbott Square.
