The Beefsteak banquet originated in New York City in the mid-1800s. Organizations wishing to raise money for politicians, friends, or a cause would host a Beefsteak. These raucous, all-you-can-eat events, had the men-only crowd sitting on creates and eating with their fingers—no utensils were provided. Beef, beer, and brass bands were the focus of the evening and gluttony was the order of the day!
It wasn’t until the passage of the 19th Amendment in 1920 that women were grudgingly invited to join the men. And with the women came refinements—suddenly forks, knives, and other niceties appeared. This annual event, in the glorious Farquharson Hall, welcomes both men and women to celebrate the pleasure and camaraderie of the communal table. There will be food, beer, and song to mark this great occasion. Oh, and utensils will be available for the faint of heart!
This annual event usually takes please in February.
