Event details

Bear's Tavern, one of the oldest events in Ostgardr's northern region, is an adult-themed gathering of friends in an informal tavern-like setting.  Those attending will receive a pouch of gold coins that they will use to purchase food and drink as well as to gamble on the various games of chance.  Competitions will be held through out the day.

The theme implies SCAdians ‘waking up’ from a long nap, hungry for any and all food.  And [REDACTED].  Did I mention [REDACTED]? Yeah, there’ll be [REDACTED].....
