The Nacogdoches County Historical Foundation is throwing Nacogdoches’ second annual Beefsteak Dinner on Friday, October 13th 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.
Tickets are $50 each and are available at the Nacogdoches Convention & Visitors Bureau, the Sterne-Hoya House Museum & Library and from any Nacogdoches County Historical Foundation Board member. 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.

Any discussion of the novel True Grit should include how the story was translated into film. Our first screening of the month will feature the 2010 Coen brothers movie starring Jeff Bridges as Rooster Cogburn.
