On this The NOLADrinks Show with Bryan Dias, we are back at one of our favorite spots – the Southern Food and Beverage Museum! As you probably know by now, we’re part of their podcast network – the Nitty Grits Podcast Network.
For our featured interview, we chat with the museum’s founder and curator, Liz Williams. Though we’ve done several shows at the museum and, at times, discussed the institution, this is the first chance we’ve had to talk about it in detail.
Liz let’s us know about the museum’s history from its founding and its original location in the River Walk to what is happening today at its current home in Central City. We talk about the museum’s mission, touch on some of its current programs, and let you know about how you can engage with them – both in-person and virtually.
Also, we talk about the importance of what the museum represents as well as the stories and information they seek to share. This includes building a community with the Southern Food and Beverage Museum as its center. Peppered throughout are interesting stories and sidebars (gelatin, anyone?)
Additionally, Liz let’s us know about some of the exhibits, the research library, and more. Of course, we also talk about the Nitty Grits Podcast Network. For hours, address, and to contact the museum, visit here.
