These monthly, free events are open to everyone interested in Pacific Northwest history. Co-sponsored by like-minded historical and civic organizations, McMenamins brings you experts, scholars, first-person experiencers and historians who expound on topics from Lewis and Clark to shipwrecks, hop growing to women pioneers and far, far beyond. It's like being back in the classroom - except this time you get to settle into comfortable seats and enjoy a drink or two with dinner while you listen and learn.
