The Thirty-fourth Year

Pleasant Peasant Picnic and Frolic -- Eskalya

May 22, 1999 (AS XXXIV)

Centennial Park,
Anchorage, AK

From The Page (May, 1999):

'Tis a pleasant peasant frolic and all are requested to doff their rank and participate in the fun and games as only peasants are wont to do. Come join the Baronial Cooking Guild at Centennial Park for the day because it's spring, and the grass is green, and the sky is blue. Be sure to come dressed in your peasant clothes. There will be games to play, dancing, a kitchen war tourney and lots of other fun and simple things to enjoy. Weapons for the tourney are to be things that would have been used in a medieval kitchen.

The feast will be a late lunch with visiting peasants bring in g something to put in to the soup pot (cooked please). The Cooking Guild will supply the broth in which to put your donations as well as the breads and spreads. These same people of the Cooking Guild will present a wonderful array of desserts for sampling at the end of your repast. Be sure to bring your own tables and chairs or picnic blankets.

Site fee: $3.00 for adults; $1.50 for smalls (babes in arms free); $5.00 for families. Site opens at 10:00 a.m. and closes at 5:00 p.m.

Autocrat: Lady Angustias McKeown (contact info omitted).
