Tavern Takeover @ Stone-Tolan

On Wednesday evening, August 30th, the Landmark Society’s Young Urban Preservationists (YUPs) are partnering with Emerging Rochester Architects (ERA), and Swiftwater Brewing to bring you a first-time event at the oldest house in Monroe County. The Landmark Society’s Stone-Tolan House Historic Site was built in the late 18th and early 19th centuries as a farm, home, and tavern. On August 30th, for one night only, we’re turning it back into a functioning tavern with beer from Swiftwater Brewing and snacks.

Eventbrite - Tavern Takeover at Stone-Tolan

Tickets are $15 and will get you your first beer and snacks as well as access to the Stone-Tolan House and grounds. Additional beers and s’mores kits will be available for purchase.

Wednesday, August 30th | 6:30-9:00 PM | 2370 East Ave. | $15

4th Annual Cocktails & Carburetors

Now in its fourth year, our Cocktails & Carburetors two-day event combines vintage and special interest autos with tours of private garages and car collections.

On Friday, September 15th from 6:30 to 9:00, you’ll attend the opening cocktail party at Horsepower Motorworks in Victor. Stroll among the many cars, both under restoration and on display, while enjoying music, cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, and a silent auction.  You’re invited to drive your special interest car for preferred parking. While there, pick up your program for the self-guided tour on Saturday, September 16th from 10:00 to 4:00 – this will be similar to a house tour, but focused on garages and their fascinating contents!

The following Sunday, September 24th from 9:00 to 1:00, Oak Hill presents their Sixth Annual Invitational Car Show, one of the best and most respected shows in our area, with cars, food, music, and drink.
