Come raise a glass at the Constitution Happy Hour at AMMO at The Hammer Museum. This new event series takes place over seven Friday evenings through May and June at 6 p.m.

In this challenging political climate it’s more important than ever to truly understand the Constitution and be knowledgable about American government. Feel free to reflect and inquire — knowledge is power!

Each Constitution Happy Hour will consist of a guided conversation, led by a legal expert, about the United States Constitution and its importance in our democracy. $5 will get you a draft beer or a select wine during AMMO’s happy hour.

Constitution Happy Hour is part of the Constitution Café, a project created by artist Linda Pollack because, as she believes, “The U.S. Constitution is a living document… influencing us in both large and small ways daily.”
