History buffs are invited to Washington-on-the-Brazos State Historic Site to dine with some of Texas’ most prominent historical figures.

“Dining with the Delegates” will be held Saturday, May 1st from 5 to 9 p.m. on the lawn of Independence Hall.  Guests can meet Sam Houston and other delegates from the Convention of 1836, hear period music, and enjoy a historically-inspired five-course meal at candlelit tables.

The meal will include scotch egg, fried catfish, black eyed peas, roasted potatoes, homemade bread and dewberry cobbler.  Each course will be served with a mead pairing from Wildflyer Mead Company.  There will also be a hand rolled cigar demonstration from Highlander Cigars, and each ticket sold will include an assorted Robusto size cigar.

In addition, 30-minute wet plate photography sessions will be available from Cody Mobley Ambrotypes.  Sessions are weather dependent.  Emails will be sent to those who have purchased photo sessions to schedule a time.

Tickets are $150 per plate, and photography sessions are available for $60.  Space is limited.  Tickets and photo sessions can be purchased at www.wheretexasbecametexas.org.
