What You'll Get
The only thing better than a glistening fried onion on one’s plate is a glistening fried onion framed and mounted in honor of itself. Explore an estate of esteemed eats with today’s Groupon: for $5, you get one general admission ticket to the Southern Food & Beverage Museum, located at the Julia Street entrance in the Riverwalk Marketplace (a $10 value). Be sure to call ahead of your visit to ensure the museum is open and not hosting a private event.
The Southern Food & Beverage Museum stuffs hungry brains with knowledge on the history, production, and culture behind the bites and beverages of the South. Whether entertaining out-of-town guests or pursuing a grits-making merit badge, visitors can explore the myriad of tastes and traditions unique to Southern fare with ongoing exhibits such as Louisiana Eats! Laissez Faire-Savoir Fare, which chronicles the evolution of the region's flavors over time. Salivating eyes can zealously scan the museum's collections, including the Menu Project, a catalog of menus from Southern-inspired restaurants all over the world. The museum’s constantly changing list of cooking and tasting events keeps the informational content as fresh as a warm biscuit emerging from a volcano.
This Groupon also grants admission to the Martha Stewart brand–endorsed Museum of the American Cocktail, which houses archaic cocktail artifacts including ancient whiskey bottles, the earliest known definition of “cock-tail”, and prohibition-era relics such as costumes once used to disguise flasks as flower pots.
