The Orange County Regional History Center’s History in a Glass nights are always such a treat. Local bartenders create cocktails based around a theme – this time, it’s “Hot, Hot, Hot!” – and while you try those cocktails, you get a little history lesson about the area – in this case, it’s all about fire, namely the 1884 fire that destroyed the downtown business district. Fittingly, you’ll even get to try bites from Mission BBQ. If no one plays that Buster Poindexter song, it’ll be a miracle.
