(6.25) Sorry for the lateness of this announcement, but there is still time to join the Rhode Island Historical Society today at the Green Line Apothecary for a continuation of Drink in the History, their year-long series pairing RI beverages with history talks.
Program guests will enjoy both Green Line’s house-made ice cream and a classic egg cream soda fountain beverage. Ken Procaccianti, co-founder and chief operating officer of Green Line Apothecary, will also share the rich history of drugstore soda fountains, including his own experience restoring the authentic 80-year-old equipment used to make the classic beverages in their stores.
Green Line — a full-service pharmacy — makes their own ice cream using local dairy and all-natural ingredients, offered in both original and vegan. Vintage soda fountain drinks like the lime rickey, ice cream soda and egg cream are always available.
Tickets are $25 for RIHS members, $30 for nonmembers.
We wrote about the Green Line fountain when they opened three years ago.
Drink in History, 1pm to 2pm, Saturday, June 25, Green Line Apothecary, 905 North Main Street, (directions)
