Enjoy the Lightner Museum’s Grand Ballroom in style during Lightner After Hours from 5pm – 7pm. Kick off the weekend in style as the Lightner Museum moves from spotlighting the Gilded Age to highlighting contemporary times with the museum’s exciting monthly cocktail hour.
Whet your appetite at November’s cocktail hour with free, specialty themed hors d’ oeuvres with a Thanksgiving twist! Silhouette artist Jeanine Owen will be offering creative and personalized silhouettes as a gift for our visitors to take home.
We encourage guests to bring with them their very worst, favorite, disastrous, or just plain memorable memories of Thanksgivings past. These can be shared on social media using the hashtag: #tragicthanksgiving and #cheerstolightner on their favorite social media sites. The most unforgettable submission will be crowned King or Queen Turkey by the end of the evening. Please come ready to share your best Thanksgiving memories just in time to make new ones!
Café Alcazar, located in the Historic Pool area of the museum, will be open with a specialty dinner menu from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Free parking is available after 5 p.m.
