‘Profs and Pints’ coming to Fairfax next month with examination of the musical Hamilton

Profs and Pints, a program that mixes casual bar atmosphere with collegiate discussions, is coming to Fairfax next month.

The program is based out of D.C. but, since 2017, has organized talks across the country. The Fairfax one will be held at the NoVa Bar & Grill in the Hilton Fairfax at 12777 Fair Lakes Circle.

The Fairfax debut of Profs and Pints will feature Richard Bell, a historian from the University of Maryland, discussing the legacy of Hamilton.

“Delivering a talk that has wowed audiences in several other cities, Professor Bell will critically examine the Hamilton musical in terms of its historical accuracy and its impact on Broadway and American culture,” a release said.

The release said the goal is to make the program accessible to Fairfax residents and to recruit speakers from nearby George Mason University.

“People who come to Profs and Pints talks at the Hilton Fairfax will be able to learn from outstanding professors for the price of an inexpensive ticket and whatever they want to order off the menu — or about as much as they would pay to go to the movies.” founder Peter Schmidt said. “They’ll truly come to see the truth in the Profs and Pints motto: No tuition or tests — just lectures you’ll love.”

Advance tickets are $14 with a $3 fee. Tickets are $17 at the door or $15 with a student ID.
