“A Night at the (BCHS) Museum” gala to revisit Prohibition with “In the ‘Still’ of the Night”

NEW ULM — Step back in time to the Prohibition era and meet characters like Al Capone, Carrie Nation, and Emma and George Marti at the Fourth Annual A Night at the (BCHS) Museum, In The “Still” Of The Night on Saturday Sept. 21. 

Enjoy a beverage and appetizers while immersing yourself in the ambiance of the 1920s. The Sleepy Eye Concertina Club will put you in the mood with music while you find out who is making homemade booze and where they are hiding it.

Pick up a “hooch card” and fill it with signatures of the characters you meet during the social hour at the Brown County Museum and Annex Meeting Room from 5:15 pm – 6:45 pm. Own a piece of history by bidding on special artwork in the silent auction. Each piece is unique, painted by an area artist on an original slate tile from the roof of the museum.

The event continues at Lola’s Bistro where you will enjoy a special meal and desert starting at 7 p.m. Add to the excitement of the evening and attend in costume from the 1920s or recreate your favorite Prohibition character!

This event is targeted towards those New Ulm area residents who have moved to the community recently, and those who want to welcome newcomers to town. The goal of the night is to help them network and learn more about their community.
