One-Man Show with MOBA art: Fox’d & Fuddled: The History of Colonial Drinking

Thursday, February 22, 2024, 7pm

Join the Museum Of Bad Art at the Dorchester Brewing Company for a spirited introduction to the drinking habits of colonial New Englanders and see why the Greene and Delaware Moral Society proclaimed in 1815 that we have become “a nation of drunkards.” View paintings with a colonial twist from the collection of the Museum Of Bad Art and be treated to one tankard of craft ale while the raucous and rakish Ambrose Gosling
entertains you 1776-style with songs and his concertina. He might just offer you a pinch of George III’s snuff!
