Historic Tea with Martina Mathisen: Chicago’s True Stories of the 1920s

May 10, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

The 1920’s are saturated with surprise, sequins, and murder! A fun and funny flapper named Flora tells us how fashion, crime, and Prohibition shaped the decade of the century. Educational entertainer Martina Mathisen will provide an interactive and highly engaging program that is a front row seat for the compelling stories of Chicago in the 1920’s, including separating fact from fiction in the 2002 Oscar-winning film Chicago. The menu includes a special blend of Earl Grey Breakfast tea, savories, finger sandwiches, scones, and petit fours served using vintage tea cups and plates. 

NOTE: This event is entirely in-person. No virtual tickets are available. If you are having trouble purchasing tickets please contact us at or 224-512-4066.
