Thursday, August 6th | 6:30pm-8:00pm | History Happy Hour: FREEDOMLAND U.S.A.


Do you love amusement parks? Ever heard of Freedomland U.S.A., the American-history themed amusement park in the Bronx from the 1960s? Most people haven't! Together we will explore the inspiration for this forgotten park, how it depicted American history through its attractions, and why it (suspiciously) failed after just five operating seasons.

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

This class is appropriate for ages 16+.


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