Original Highwayman Robert Lewis will be live painting during the event.

SPONSORED: Orlando’s favorite cocktail competition meets history class is back for one more shin-dig before 2019 hits us in the face, in the latest edition of this monthly local Drunk History lessonhosted by the Orange County Regional History Center.

Local craft bars compete for bragging rights by creating tasty libations inspired by local history. Past muses have included local murder mysteries like Dolores Myerly who was killed in the San Juan Hotel in 1938, celery, and hot firefighters.

This month’s event is all about the Florida Highwaymen; a group of 26 self-taught artists of color who created over 200,000 landscape paintings in the 1950s and 1960s. They were forced to sell their work door-to-door or from the trucks of their cars as they weren’t allowed to show in traditional galleries of the time.

Now they are celebrated as major parts of Florida’s cultural history and are members of the Florida Artists Hall of Fame.

Enjoy great music, and food by Cafe Madrid, and vote on the best cocktail of the night from competing bars; The Courtesy, Domu, and Wine Bar George.

Tickets are $25 for the general public, $20 for members, and there’s a special code for Bungalower Bundle subscribers and Bungalower Buddy Facebook Group members. Tickets can be purchased HERE.

The doors open at 6 p.m. with the event kicking off at 6:30 p.m. For more details, call 407-836-7046.
