Tapping Into Twain: Year 5

Five years ago, the wonderful Caitlin Thayer decided it was time to honor Twain's love of a good brew. In our archives, we have sales receipts for all manner of brews the Clemens family had delivered to their home-- mostly lagers-- and so, the staff here decided to celebrate in a style our dear Sam would have enjoyed.

That first year, we had a bunch of great breweries and a few great local restaurants. The food went so fast we had to order a huge batch of fresh pizzas in the middle of the party. The second year, we had tons of fabulous food, and the years began to blur together. Year three: perfect. Year four: perfect. The Hartford Advocate called Tapping Into Twain "absolutely, positively, without any doubt whatsoever, one of the best charitable events Hartford has beheld in quite some time."

This year, we've got many new breweries and restaurants-- from breweries that just opened this years, to longtime restaurants we've never landed before. Please join us for the fifth annual celebration of fun and frolic  on Farmington Avenue. It's what Sam would have wanted.
