Event details

*****The Event has SOLD OUT!  We can not take anyone at the door!!******

The Bhakail Tavern has once more come under new ownership!  Please join us at The Sign of the Stag and Sparrow in the atmospheric Ratskeller of the German Society of Pennsylvania.  Here we will gather for joy, merriment, and great food.  Their Excellencies Bhakail - Baron Rowen Cloteworthy and Baroness Suba al-Hadid - will also use this occasion to choose two new Champions of their Court:  their Bardic and Gaming Champions.  Anyone who lives in a territory bordering Bhakail is invited to compete for either accolade, but any member of the populace may - and is encouraged to - enter for the fun and merriment.

Our dayboard spread - prepared by Eirani inn Sporr featuring bread by Runi inn Irski (baker of Shire Wars fame) - will feature foods to warm your bones in the midst of these winter days.  The site is damp, so those who wish to display and sample brews and concoctions of their own will be allotted space to do so.

This event is limited to 60 attendees, so pre-registering is highly encouraged to ensure entry to the Tavern.  We will be taking pre-registration through PayPal this year, as well as cash or check.  While the site is ADA accessible, the site requests that anyone needing an elevator to enjoy the day’s festivities please reach out to the Event Steward in advance.
