Enjoy a historic happy hour under the stars at the Fort Bend Museum! Presented by the Fort Bend History Association, the annual “Bites & Brews” event is set for Saturday, September 23rd from 6:30 to 10 pm.  The event features popular local food vendors, craft beer and wine, live music and – new for 2017, a classic car show – all against the backdrop of the 1883 historic Moore Home.

“Transportation has been a key part of the development and growth of Fort Bend County from the early days of horse and buggy to trains, tractors and eventually the automobile,” said Tim Kaminski, president of the Fort Bend History Association’s Board of Trustees. “We want to invite everyone to come out enjoy the best that Fort Bend has to offer in bites, brews and some classic transportation!”

Live music will be provided by Shark Bait, a local band that features original songs and also has repertoire of great classics.

“The Fort Bend Museum reminds us of the significant role our area has played in the formation of Texas. From being part of the Old 300 to fighting in the Texas Revolution and more, the Museum transports us back in time and reminds us of the hardships and sacrifices made to establish the freedoms we enjoy,” said Dan Ennis, Shark Bait’s lead performer. “It is an absolute privilege for Shark Bait to perform again at this great event and support the hard work that goes into preserving this history.”

Back by popular demand, a limited number of reserved tables for eight will be available for $500 each and will include commemorative beer-tasting glasses.  Tickets are on sale now and cost $40 per person or $75 per couple. Members of the Fort Bend History Association receive a discount of $35 per person or $65 per couple. To purchase tickets or a table, contact Zarinah K. Poole at 281-342-1256 or zpoole@fbhistory.org.
