Old Fort Niagara will host 'Tavern Nights'by jmaloni
Old Fort Niagara will host "Tavern Night," an evening of 18th century-style entertainment, live music and period refreshments on Saturdays, March 3 and 10, from 7 to 10 p.m. Tavern goers will experience the world of the 18th century tavern life, complete with scheming politicians, questionable land salesmen, medical quacks, British Army recruiters, runaway servants and a bevy of comely tavern wenches.
The event is a fundraiser to benefit Old Fort Niagara's educational programming. The fort serves about 75,000 people per year, 12,000 of whom are school children. Tickets are $30 per person and must be purchased in advance by calling 716-745-7611.
