Love is in the air at the Betsy Ross House this Valentine’s Day weekend. For the most unique date in town, grab your plus one and join Betsy, herself, for Tipsy History: A Love Story Friday, February 12th, Saturday, February 13th, and Sunday, February 14th.
You’ll hear a love story for the ages when you meet a young Betsy Ross just after her elopement with husband John. She faces the condemnation of her Quaker community for marrying outside her religion. Will she choose faith and family or true love?
Then, couples will head into the House for a special love-themed tour and finally, a walk around the corner to Art in the Age to warm up with a delicious, handcrafted cocktail, featuring that most patriotic of ingredients in Betsy’s time…chocolate!
Tours, which run about 90 minutes, will be timed and tickets limited to allow for proper social distancing. Masks are required. Tipsy History: A Love Story will run and 5 p.m., 6 p.m. and 7 p.m. on Friday, February 12th, Saturday, February 13th, and Sunday, February 14th.
*** Tickets are $25 per person and must be purchased in advance at historicphiladelphia.org.***
