In celebration of the relaunching of the last surviving wooden whaleship, Lyman Allyn presents Greasy Luck! The Whaling World of the Charles W. Morgan.
The exhibition, which runs from September 21 through June 8, 2014, will look at how whaling—its myths and reality, risk and reward—left its mark on Connecticut and American identity.
In the 1800s, friends and family gathered on the docks to wish “greasy luck” for a successful voyage to departing whaleships.
To most people, whales were mysterious creatures. Yet whaling was big business.
The thousands of barrels of oil the whalers brought home made ports like New London and Mystic some of the wealthiest places in the young nation, supporting a wide array of dockside occupations.
Visitors will be mesmerized by images that transform from 19th century photos to present-day scenes in Westport artist’s Miggs Burroughs new lenticular photography show.
The exhibition will be on view through February 18, 2014.
Long Trail Brewmaster Dave Hartmann & Author John Holl
Craft Beer Food Pairing Seminar at Mohegan Sun WineFest
Friday, January 24, 7 – 8:30 p.m.
Based on recipes from the recently released American Craft Beer Cookbook, the seminar will lead attendees through a five course tasting and pairing event featuring a Grafton Village Cheese Course, three selections from sea, farm & field, and dessert. Led by industry veterans Dave Hartmann & John Holl, the seminar is designed to enlighten on how the primary and broad ranging flavors in craft beer complement, contrast with and accentuate what we dine on – whether from a wide variety of hops, malt, yeast, special ingredients or even the water used in brewing itself. At least five different Long Trail beers will be in the seminar – some easy to find, some uncommon, some never before released. Attendees will also receive a fine quality Spiegelau crystal tulip tasting glass to further enhance their tasting experience. The pairings will include:
Welcome Beer: Belgian Brunette with
Assortment of Grafton Village VT aged cheeses
Long Trail Ramble (Lemon Pepper Kolsch) with
