To mark the 50th anniversary of Neil Armstrong’s historic journey, the Golden Lamb is celebrating the first man to walk on the moon and our Warren County neighbor with a special Dinner with History.
The dinner will be Saturday, July 20 – the same date 50 years after Armstrong touched the lunar surface. Take your own small steps to our second floor President’s Room, where we will have two seatings — 4:30 p.m. and 8:00 p.m. The event includes a special three-course dinner featuring local ingredients and a main course spotlighting some of Commander Armstrong’s favorite Golden Lamb dishes.
This meal and talk with Golden Lamb Historian John Zimkus will explore a somewhat undiscovered aspect of the American hero – the time after his lunar landing. This Neil Armstrong was a citizen of Warren County, and Turtlecreek Township, as well as an active member of the Lebanon, Ohio community for 23 years. He lived here longer than any other place on this Earth. We will examine how one of history’s most famous people attempted to live a normal life among us.
Dinner is $45/person, inclusive of tax and gratuity for food and the Zimkus talk. Bar service is also available during the dinner.
Reservations are only accepted by phone. Please call us at (513) 932-5065 to confirm your seat at this historic event.
