Join the West Baton Rouge Museum for its monthly Historical Happy Hour on Friday, August 19th, 2022 from 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM. This month’s Happy Hour will treat the public to a closing event celebrating two exhibits: From Sugar to Rum and Women of the Blues. The evening will begin with a rum talk and tasting from Three Roll Estate, Louisiana’s single estate distillery, and followed by a screening of the film, Carol Fran: Tous Les Jours C’est Pas La Même (Everyday Is Not The Same). Raised along the bayous of Lafayette, Louisiana, Carol Fran’s distinct Creole songs, and piano-playing style mark her celebrated career that spans seven decades.
After the screening, director, filmmaker, and cultural anthropologist, Becky Schexnayder of Coulée Productions will treat guests to a Q & A. Coulée Productions, based in South Louisiana, produces films and documentaries with a focus on the rich culture of South Louisiana.
This event is FREE and open to the public.
