music, food, and drink, set the scene of an evening in 18th century Trenton,
when King George II still ruled and the tavern was the center of town.
The Old Barracks Museum will transform into a colonial tavern filled with music, drinks, games, and candlelight.
Dance Master Sue Dupre will provide dance instruction for those who wish to dance but do not yet know the steps.
John Burkhalter, of The Practitioners of Musick, accompanied by Russell Hoffman, will perform music of the 18th century on period instruments.
Period dress is neither required nor discouraged and you will find many people from the past and present mingling together.
Hors d’oeuvres and an open bar of wine and beer will be provided throughout the evening.
Bid on a wide range of items in the Silent Auction, including an original painting by James Doherty, four tickets to a NY Jets game, and many more prizes donated by local businesses.
