'Bottoms Up' Book Event in Madison

The Culinary History Enthusiasts of Wisconsin (CHEW) will present Wisconsin Historical Society Press author Jim Draeger, who co-wrote "Bottoms Up: A Toast to Wisconsin's Historic Bars and Breweries," at its February meeting. Draeger will explore the rise of taverns and breweries in Wisconsin, discuss the history of temperance and Prohibition in the state, and attitudes about gender, ethnicity and morality.

Draeger is an architectural historian and deputy state historic preservation officer at the Wisconsin Historical Society with more than 25 years of historic preservation experience. From roadside architecture to Northwoods resorts, Draeger celebrates the importance of ordinary buildings to our daily lives through his research, writing and lectures. 'Bottoms Up' is one such example of that work.

Coming to the CHEW meeting? Why not bring a nonperishable food item to donate to the Goodman Center food pantry. The center is giving out food as fast as it can take it in, and the need has never been greater. Items needed: tuna, beans, shelf-stable milk, juice, canned fruits and vegetables, macaroni and cheese, peanut butter, cereal, infant formula, baby food, diapers, soup (not tomato), rice and can openers. Financial donations are also welcome.

Ticket Info: Free and open to the public
