Historical Happy Hour: USO Dance and the Victory Belles

January 23

Your weekly happy hour just got happier, with an added dose of storytelling and local lore. For its regular Historical Happy Hour events, the West Baton Rouge Museum hosts a local musicians and storytellers, featuring intellectual discussions, music, panels, speakers, and—of course—drinks, though those are up to you. So pack up your favorite libations, and open your mind to the history of our community.

This month’s event will have an especially patriotic flair to celebrate the museum’s new exhibit, Pelican State Goes to War. Visitors are encouraged to come in military attire or period dress. Enjoy a 1940s themed USO Dance, complete with swing dancing, special tours of the exhibit, and musical performances by the Victory Belles, a vocal trio singing the music of the era.

Held on the back lawn near the Juke Joint; bring blankets and folding chairs. 3 pm–5 pm. Free. westbatonrougemuseum.com.
