Name: Nacogdoches Beefsteak Dinner
Date: January 14, 2022
Time: 7:00 PM - 10:00 PM CST
Event Description:
The Nacogdoches County Historical Foundation is throwing Nacogdoches’ fifth annual Beefsteak Dinner on Friday, January 14th at Mast Hall. Beefsteak dinners originated in the early 1900’s in New Jersey and New York and were a time honored tradition around election time. A friend of a politician would throw their friend a Beefsteak dinner – a dinner full of meat, beer and bread – and raise money for the campaign. These dinners were rowdy and unsophisticated; there are no plates, no napkins and no forks or knives. Men were encouraged to wear their “second best suit because of the inevitably of grease spots” and the events took place on the weekend so the attendees would have time to recover before the work week. Our Beefsteak event will start at 7 pm; tickets are $50 each (tables of 8 are $400) and are available from any Nacogdoches County Historical Foundation Board member or online at Eventbrite. Attendees will get hearty portions of meat, beer and will be given a commemorative apron to wear during the event and take home with them. The Nacogdoches Beefsteak dinner directly benefits the restoration of the historic Zion Hill Baptist Church. What better way to spend a Friday night in Downtown Nacogdoches than to attend a dinner where all the courses are meat, bread and beer?
