Posters & Cocktails: Hocus Pocus
October 3, 2022
6:30–8pm
Free!

Posters House’s favorite trio is back at it with a new season of Posters & Cocktails. Join Chief Curator Angelina Lippert as she acts as emcee for another booze-fueled evening focusing on the wonders of magic posters and some seriously spooky cocktails. 

Nicholas Lowry of Swann Auction Galleries will showcase decades of posters covering all things paranormal and phantasmagoric, from the likes of Harry Houdini to the mind-bending impossibilities of sideshow necromancers. Accompanying him is Poster House’s resident mixologist, Don Spiro of The Green Fairy Society, who will pair each portion of the lecture with wizardly potions worthy of the alchemist within. 

This series is hosted for free over Zoom thanks to the generous support of Don Lebowitz and Claudia Wagner. Please check back closer to the date of the event for a complete list of cocktail ingredients so you can follow along at home and taste some of these delectable beverages!
