From The Page (September, 2008):

Their Majesties invite one and all to a glorious day of fighting and inspiration to determine the heirs to the thrones. The theme for Crown will be "Shakespeare in the Park". There will be a performance Saturday and a party on the Eric Saturday evening for the populace, so come dressed as your favorite Shakespearian character! Titania and Oberon can't find that mischievous Puck or his love-inducing magical flower anywhere... so they've decided to rely on the time-honored elixir of love - booze! The Booze Fairies are back, inviting *you* to help find a Cure for Breast Cancer. Seek out the Crippled Griffin Bar on the eric on Saturday night. Drinks will be available by donation Drink for a cause - Bring your ID, Bring your mug, and Bring your wallet!
