Ladies Night Workshop with Dina Vargo
August 31st 6-8pm
Join us for a ladies’ night out in the North End at Lucca’s Restaurant & Bar for a unique workshop that offers four chocolate and wine pairings, featuring our very own colonial chocolate products from Captain Jackson’s Historic Chocolate Shop! While you dazzle your palette, learn more about the wild women of Boston with author and Boston by Foot tour guide Dina Vargo. The Sons of Liberty are celebrated in the rebellious history of Boston but what of their sisters? An audacious and determined procession of reformers, socialites, criminals and madams made the city what it is today. Author Dina Vargo unearths the remarkable stories of the wild women of the Hub and will explore female entrepreneurs, including a pair of women who operated one of the first coffeehouses in the colonies in 1670! Walk away with a goodie bag of recipes and chocolate sticks as well as a greater knowledge of wine and chocolate pairings. Don’t forget to purchase Dina’s book Wild Women of Boston on your way out.
