"A Smoking Party", 1824. The Lewis Walpole Library.

We have a new event this spring! On May 12th, we will be pairing fine rums and cigars in celebration of the historic rum trade. As the print above from the Lewis Walpole Library shows, gentlemen enjoyed puffing and quaffing in social situations in the 19th century. Of course, we will be outside instead of sitting around the Hammond-Harwood dining room! All guests (of age, of course!) are invited to partake in the sampling from 5pm-7pm in our beautiful garden. Please call 410-263-4683 ext.10 for reservations. $60 per person.
