The tasting room staff latched on to the fact that cross-dressing was a popular past time during the Civil War. Women would dress as men to get enlisted, men would dress as women to avoid being called to arms. Dorothea “Dragon Lady” Dix was no exception. She was known for wearing “men’s clothes” throughout her tenure in the army and beyond as she found it more practical for caring for her patients. With all of this in mind, the team decided to host a drag party, so while we always encourage you to be yourself, feel free to come as someone else.
