The “Ambassador of Americana” returns to celebrate the kitschy and campy side of American pop culture. With his trademark smile and horn-rimmed glasses, Phoenix is known for his nostalgic slide shows, bus tours and coffee table books. Phoenix shows his latest Kodachrome holiday photos from the ‘50s and ‘60s and other field trip finds. And if you’re familiar with his Cherpumple, Phoenix shares his newest “test kitchen” creations, including a “Yule Long Flambe.” In keeping with Modernica Props’ history as a former Hostess Brands bakery plant, you can also expect cake with Twinkie frosting and live organ music.
