Drinking in museums? Yes! The National World War I Museum (100 West 26th Street, 816-888-8100) holds a free event with a German twist. Smartman's Happy Hour: Brecht & Bier Garden, at 5:30 p.m., features a reading of Bertolt Brecht's Drums in the Night and a discussion with director and UMKC lecturer Erin Merritt about World War I and its effect on Brecht. "With Brecht, we've always got the burden of people thinking they're going to be bludgeoned over the head with icky politics because so many people try to perform Brecht with no sense of humor," Merritt explains. Happy-hour drinks and appetizers provided by Martini Corner's Haus. RSVP by sending an e-mail to info@theworldwar.org; see theworldwar.org for more information.
