Tavern of the Mask and Rat - Bhakail Tavern 2021

Hosted by Barony of Bhakail - Your town, PA

Event date: January 23rd, 2021

Event Last Modified: January 18th, 2021

Event details

Join friends and make new ones in the (virtual) rathskeller as another Bhakail Tavern rolls around!  We'll have a day of gaming, stories, and space for classes, music, etc.  if desired, followed by Court.

Keeping with the tradition of the event, we're having a couple of new staff train during the running of this event for hopefully running it themselves next year as Steward and Head Cook.  Being the year that it has been, though, *this* year is a bad one for having someone new run it; not because they couldn't do it (it's *so* easy to run virtual events) but because this isn't the normal version of the event, so all of the prep and expectations around it are out the window.

So, following on Yule's experiment, we are once again offering take-away food as a fundraiser to add to the experience of the day while we're still all remote by necessity.  Keep an eye open for specifics, but spoiler:  there'll be homemade bread baked by our deputy cook!  By a few demands, too, yes...Bhakail Pickled Eggs will be offered, too.

Additionally, we picked the 23rd versus the 30th so that we could overlap with another event being organized that day:  a virtual merchant's faire!  Since Birka's not happening, we can't browse the merchants who would be there normally, but we can find some at the Faire being put on that day.  Keep an eye out for announcements around that adjacent event; we will very likely get some drop-ins from the Faire and vice versa :)

The event will open at noon, with ample time and Zoom breakout rooms available for classes/games/meetings/etc.  should anyone want to organize an activity.  Court will be at 5pm and following Court we can join one another for feast and continue with one another's company.
