Bixby’s and Kaldi’s Coffee Roasting Co. teamed up for a coffee-infused dinner on November 11, 2015, celebrating Missouri History Museum’s new coffee exhibit & coffee’s great history in St. Louis.

The communal dinner began with a cocktail reception, followed by a multi-course dinner and a curator-led tour of the exhibit. “Coffee: The World in Your Cup and St. Louis in Your Cup” runs through Jan. 3, 2016.

The menu included:
