A Sip Down Memory Lane

Media Title

Scent is strongly and inexorably tied to human memory. Certain smells can stimulate brain activity and carry a person’s thoughts back in time. Never is this phenomenon more pertinent than during the holiday season: Most of us create an idyllic memory of our childhood holidays, an environment we can always revert back to during the season. The smell of the house you grew up in, the tree in the living room, feasts cooking in the kitchen—the holidays are a revered time in American culture, and it’s worth deconstructing why that is.

The Lantern Theater Company’s A Sip Down Memory Lane is all about exploring and celebrating the aromas that can evoke memories in our brains. The Wine School of Philadelphia’s president, Keith Wallace, will present an array of carefully chosen wine and cocktail samples meant to stimulate your taste buds and recollective synapses. Seven wines, spirits and classic cocktails will be smartly paired with traditional holiday tavern fare, and Wallace will lead a discussion on the conjuring of memories that the drinks have, as well as a general reflection on the ties between scent and memory.

Following A Sip Down Memory Lane, the Lantern Theater presents its Christmas special A Child’s Christmas in Wales, which focuses on holiday memories, seen through the scope of a child’s gaze of his Welsh village at Christmastime. Tickets are available for both great events as a package, as well as separately. / DANIEL GELB
