Evidence of Program's Success

The National Trust for Historic Preservation challenged its historic sites to embrace their cultures. At Louis Dupuy's Hotel de Paris, the culture is food and drink (culinary history).

Each occurrence of the program (fourth Friday June-August 2018 so far) has been well attended and generated enough income to pay for the event and raise operating funds for museum operations. A welcome side effect of the program has been the generation of hundreds of dollars in additional donations.
