Happy New Year!
And it's my annual 12th Night party - or what you will. (Technically on 15th Night or some such this year, but I don't want to be confused by mere facts.)
If we can get a quorum of wooters, I'd like to open a Canadian wine that's a blend of siegerrebe and ortega. (Got those, yet, Sparky?)
Twelfth Night Party!
Saturday, January 8th 2011
6pm until ???
Twelfth Night: "the evening of the fifth of January, preceding Twelfth Day, the eve of the Epiphany, formerly the last day of the Christmas festivities and observed as a time of merrymaking". (OED)
It's like New Year's but without the pressure that you *must* have a good time. So if you can handle some merrymaking, come on over...
As usual, the crowd will likely be a mix of actors, musicians, dancers, massage therapists and engineers... "Party pieces" encouraged. Feel free to bring a musical instrument (piano and harp already here) and a fascinating friend.
There should be plenty of food and drink - and I have way too much wine - so bringing stuff is optional - but still I'm very happy to accept offerings of food, flowers or poetry.
