Tavern Talk: Peculiar Encounters and Spectral Mayhem 7:00 pm
October 15, 2019 @ 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM
The story-teller, who was just putting a glass of wine to his lips, as a refreshment after his toils, paused for a moment, looked at his inquirer with an air of infinite deference, and, lowering the glass slowly to the table, observed that the story was intended most logically to prove. — The Legend of Sleepy Hollow post-script, Washington Irving, 1820
Join us at the Fargo Bar & Grill (384 Main Street, Aurora, NY 13026) as we welcome the Seward House Museum to explore the haunted, menacing underbelly of the Finger Lakes region that, while scenic by day, has attracted all sorts of bizarre and peculiar encounters. These tales of spectral mayhem, grizzly true crime stories, possible possessions, and other spooky accounts, drawn from local folklore and history, will be told around the tavern over drinks, as they would have been in the 19th century. And as you listen to these strange tales, discover the same possessive elements of the area which drew famed spooky-story writer, Washington Irving, to central New York in the autumn of 1838.
This event is open to all and requires pre-registration. Seating is limited to 25 people. $15 advance ticket purchase includes tavern bites and a complimentary glass of beer, wine, soda, coffee or tea. $20 cash at the door if seating remains.
