Thursday, October 24th | 6:30pm-8:00pm | History Happy Hour: Trick-or-Treat


It is said the veil between the living and dead grows thin and that spirits freely roam the earth one day each year: Halloween. How did these ancient beliefs develop into modern customs of trick-or-treating, carving jack-o-lanterns, and wearing costumes? In this class, we’ll explore the origins of this spooky holiday and the various cultural traditions that weave together into our present-day celebrations of Halloween.

Please note: Each ticket includes one happy hour drink, or a non-alcoholic drink, of your choice. Drinks and mingling will take place from 6:30pm-7:00pm, and the class itself will run from 7:00pm-8:00pm. Students will also receive 10% off dinner at Nox the day of class.

This class will take place at Nox Cocktail Lounge, located at 302 Goodman St N., Rochester NY, 14607.
