Wild Women of Boston Chocolate & Wine Pairing!
Mettle & Moxie with Dina Vargo
Co-sponsored by the Nichols House Museum
Celebrate Women’s History Month with the female staff of Old North Historic Site and the Nichols House Museum at a unique workshop that offers four chocolate and wine pairings, featuring Old North’s very own colonial chocolate products from Captain Jackson’s Historic Chocolate Shop! While you dazzle your palette, learn more about some of the wild women political reformers of Boston with author and tour guide Dina Vargo. She will share the remarkable stories of the fabulous Nichols women and two other women from her book! 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, along with some delectable chocolate goodies from Captain Jackson’s.
This event is part of a 3 part series in partnership with the Nichols House Museum for Women’s History Month. We encourage you to attend as many as you can!

Old North’s programming for 2017 is broken up into three themes: Boston as Mindscape, Boston as Seascape, and Boston as Landscape. This event falls under Boston as Mindscape: Contemplating the Ideas, Concepts, and Identities Born in the Athens of America, which covers women’s history, intellectual process, patriotic philanthropy, immigration & identity, and literary legacy. We hope you explore our full slate of programming for the year.
