Tavern Takeover coming up 8/14

On Wednesday evening, August 14th, the Landmark Society and the Young Urban Preservationists (YUPs) are partnering with Roc City Rotary and Silver Lake Brewing Project to bring you the Tavern Takeover 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. For one night only, we’re turning it back into a functioning tavern with beer from Silver Lake Brewing and snacks.

PLUS: for the first time ever, we’re also bringing you a sing-along with the Flower City Beer Choir! Flower City Beer Choir is among the newest chapters of the national Beer Choir Movement uniting local beer and song!

Wednesday, August 14th | 6:30-9:00 PM | Stone-Tolan House Historic Site, 2370 East Ave.
