SAH 80th Anniversary Signature Cocktails 

80th Celebration image header
In the summers of 2010 and 2015, Dr. Rebecca S. Graff, Associate Professor of Anthropology at Lake Forest College, led archeological digs at the Charnley-Persky House, the home of SAH's Chicago office. The student teams recovered approximately 100 items. You can read more, view a video about the dig, and view the items that were found on the Charnley-Persky House website.

The items that were recovered by the teams offer a window into the day-to-day life at the Charnley-Persky House and the Chicago community in general more than 100 years ago. Now these items have become the inspiration for three celebratory drinks to mark the 80th Anniversary of SAH's work supporting the architectural history community.

The ingredients for the drinks (two cocktails and one non-alcoholic mocktail) are listed below so you can make sure you have all you need to make the drinks with us at our 80th Anniversary Celebration this Friday, November 13, 7 PM CST / 8 PM EST. Instructions and demonstration videos will be available on Friday.

If you haven't already, reserve your ticket for the free event now.
