Dining with John and Abigail Adams

For the fourth year in a row, we had dinner with a colonist at the Cock and Bull Restaurant. Last year we dined with Betsy Ross and Oney Judge (Martha Washington's personal slave who escaped from Philadelphia to her freedom). This year we ate with John and Abigail Adams. 

The evening was part of their Colonial Kitchen series, which has taken place winter Monday nights for over 25 years. The food is plentiful-- soup, salad, two entrees and dessert. The price has remained $21.95 for adults and $10.95 for children for as long as we can remember.

A side note: Ashley is wearing one of my dresses from when I was about her age. Even though I was taller than her at this age, hemlines were a lot shorter in the mid-1970s.

The best part of the event was watching John and Abigail make goo goo eyes at each other. More than 200 years later and they are still very much in love -- or so it seems.

As always, Marianne and Tom Tucker of Tucker's Tales provided the entertainment. They regaled us with their amazing collection of Colonial tunes. They are always happy to see us, either here or at one of their other events. They love history and they love performing together. 

Looking at this year's list, there are still lots of great "people" to meet.
