My dear nocturnal seekers of mystification. It’s me — Miss Teria, your one and only host of the Hennepin History Museum’s After-Hours events. This time our Night of the Unknown celebrated the start of the holiday season with playfully references to consumerism.
Our mystery object this time was a cookie display glass that we believe was from the 1920’s. It was one of many that wrapped around the top of the plate glass windows at the Burch Drug Store on Hennepin and Franklin Avenue. They were intended to be almost indistinguishable from stained glass windows.
A YogaQuest narrator and a certified yoga instructor led us through a cautionary tale based on the cult film ‘Gremlins.’ We were delighted to offer cold cuts of vegan meat and cheese from The Herbivorous Butcher and beer from our sponsor Indeed Brewing Company.
Until next time,
