The Good Life: A Taste of Food and Dining at Midcentury

Take an afternoon to enjoy the "good life," midcentury-style, with Karen Scalia of Salem Food Tours. Start with period-themed nibbles and virgin tiki drinks, then set the scene with a stroll through California Design 1935-1965: Living in a Modern Way. From there, embark on a culinary journey through downtown Salem exploring the related food, lifestyle and design trends that transformed American eating. The walking tour includes food and wine tastings at local shops and restaurants, with samplings inspired by popular midcentury foods. Enjoy talks with chefs and fellow food lovers as you learn about the changing dining culture as it swept the nation, as well as learn Salem's own food history and more.

For age 21 and up, only.

Dress for the weather, in comfortable shoes, and bring a lightweight tote for purchases. This event will be held rain or shine.
