The Warwick Historical Society will host their annual Tavern Night at Baird’s Tavern on Sat., Mar. 4 from 6 to 9 p.m. The tavern, located at 105 Main St., once played host to George Washington on a trip from Philadelphia, PA to Newburgh, NY. There are receipts that attest to the General’s patronage of Baird’s Tavern, which has been preserved by the Society and looks much as it did 250 years ago. The tavern began as a welcoming destination point for travelers and did a brisk business due to the importance of the well-traveled crossroads on which it stands.
Delicious pub food will be generously provided by local restaurants such as Fetch Bar & Grill, Yesterday’s, Halligan’s, Noble Pies, Blarney Station and Jean Claude’s Patisserie. Wine, beer and other beverages will be flowing. Music by Mike and Anne Baglione will set the tone for a great celebration.
