Join The National WWII Museum, New Orleans Food Policy Advisory Committee, and The American Sector Restaurant & Bar as we celebrate victory gardens during the season of eating locally. This year we’re highlighting the Museum’s newest special exhibit, Ghost Army: The Combat Con Artists of World War II, on view through September 13, 2020, in the Senator John Alario, Jr. Special Exhibition Hall, located on the first level of Hall of Democracy. The Special Exhibition Hall will be open for viewing for an hour before the evening program begins so that patrons can view the exhibit.
This year we welcome a number of local distillers who will compete to create the best garden-fresh cocktail prepared with local ingredients inspired by WWII victory gardens and this year’s theme, Camouflage and Cocktails. Sample the garden-fresh libations, learn how to make them at home, and vote for your favorite cocktail. The best cocktail selected by participants will be served at The American Sector Restaurant & Bar and upcoming victory garden programming.
This event requires preregistration. For more information, call 504-528-1944 x 484.
