Continue your journey toward Halloween with Part 2 of this virtual program. Tonight, we’ll feature staff and volunteers sharing their otherworldly experiences from the historic battleship in Wilmington. We won’t give away details, but rest assured: their experiences are many, and varied. MingleBars, serving unique and custom, tailored bar experiences to guests in Raleigh and surrounding areas—and now online events—is onboard with guest bartenders this evening—and they’ll be creating another hauntingly delicious cocktail for us!

Kim Robinson Sincox grew up in Gastonia and visited the USS North Carolina at age 10, dressed in a special patriotic dress she picked just for the occasion. Who knew that she would arrive back at the ship in March 1990 to begin a long and satisfying career in the ship’s museum? She now fills her days providing education programs and shipboard interpretation for adults and children, along with former crew members and their families.

History and Highballs is an early-evening adults-only virtual program designed to investigate some of North Carolina’s more fascinating stories, places, and characters. So grab a favorite evening libation and tune in to these events. Not sure how to make a mixed drink or what drink to mix? The series includes a quick introduction on mixed drinks, alongside the historical lecture. Tonight, MingleBars, serving unique and custom, tailored bar experiences to guests in Raleigh and surrounding areas—and now online events—is onboard with guest bartenders to guide us through creating a hauntingly delicious cocktail! Talks are accompanied with media, when available, and followed by a short audience Q&A session.
