Cocktail napkins have captured moments of discovery, groundbreaking business concepts, and revolutionary ideas. But where did napkins come from in the first place? The history of napkins dates all the way back to the Ancient Romans, who were first known to use cloth napkins. Fast forward to the 1940s and 1950s, industrial papermaking gave rise to the cocktail napkins ignited by the popularity of cocktails during the prohibition era.
The community is invited to partake in this event using cocktail napkins to jot down thoughts, random scribblings and bring ideas to life. Each 3rd Friday of the month a new theme will set the stage for the night’s events. The activities include creating art and movie showings, as well as beer, wine and cocktail tastings. Bring a friend and meet new people to draw, learn, socialize and muse.
