Explore the BMI’s newest exhibition on the Neighborhood Corner Bar and hear curator Rachel Donaldson in conversation with Jon Michaud, author of Last Call at Coogan’s: The Life and Death of a Neighborhood Bar and the owners of Melanie’s at Griffith’s Tavern in Hampden.
Melanie’s @ Griffith’s Tavern opened in April of 2022, but has been a neighborhood watering hole for nearly 100 years. Originally a stag bar, it now stands as an inclusive space, reimagined by new owners Hannah Spangler and Allison Crowley.
Jon Michaud is a writer and librarian based in New Jersey. He is the author of two books: When Tito Loved Clara, a novel (2011) and Last Call at Coogan’s: The Life and Death of a Neighborhood Bar (2023). Copies of Last Call will be available for sale in the gift shop.
Conversation included with museum admission.
The Baltimore Museum of Industry celebrates the dignity of work, and can provide a forum for exploring such issues as workers’ rights and workplace equity, providing historical context for contemporary issues that impact our community.
