May 26, 1991

In the mood for a new and unusual dining experience? Or jus looking for a creative way to entertain guests?

Either way, you can take a journey back in time with the people at the Baltimore City Life Museum's 1840 House, 800 E. Lombard St.

"Let's Meet in the Past: An 1840 Get-Together" is offered from 6:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. the second Thursday of each month. The cost is $30 per person for the general public and $27 per person for members.

Guests begin the evening by being the cook's helper. Dressed in 19th century costumes, the museum staff guide them in preparing a three-course meal of stew, roast chicken and other 19th century fare over the open hearth. Dinner is served in the upstairs parlor.

Following dinner, guests are invited to play 19th century games such as "Russian gossip" and "squeak, piggy, squeak."
