The tavern in Colonial America was not only a lodging place for travelers, but where people went to enjoy a drink, get the latest news and discuss politics and religion. It was also a place where history was made. Years after the Revolutionary War, the French Arms Tavern in Trenton served as the capitol of the United States, and meeting place of the Congress of the Confederation from November 1 to December 24, 1784. Join us in raising a glass to these social hubs of the past, the role they played in shaping our country’s history and their influence on how we socialize today.
For the Revolutionary Pub Crawl we will begin at 5pm at Checkers (14 South Warren St.) then head over to Settimo Cielo Restaurant (17 East Front St.). Next up we’ll stop at Millhill Saloon (300 South Broad St.) and finally end the evening with a pint of ale at Trenton Social (449 South Broad St.).
