Well, almost. If the cutoff date for the SCA is 1600, let's party like it's 1599 (will the Prince be there?). The Barony of Small Gray Bear and the proto-Canton of Southtower bring you Bombay 1599: a relaxing weekend of fun, food, and frolic.
Enjoy a weekend of fighting heavy weapons and rapier), Live Weapons, A&S (populace judged: NO documentation required), and lots of food. The Barony's own Kat the Strange is offering up an Indian "street feast" that you can eat with your hands, including Tali machli (fried fish), baigan pakora (battered & fried eggplant), fresh onion chutney, chicken marinated in yogurt and spices, shami kebab, fried bananas and much more. No, sorry... peanut butter will not be available for the fried bananas (we DON'T want to have to call Doctor Bombay).
Lunch will be a fundraiser to benefit the Southtower.
After a hot day of fighting, you can relax in the pool... even hold a naval battle or watergun fight with your friends. At midnight, House Ishee will bring you Adult Swim featuring many of your favorite beverages, or bring one of your own. But no glass containers, PLEASE! (No, we don't care that the chlorine might disinfect things if you cut yourself. We don't want blood in the pool, so NO glass containers... final answer!)
Also, His Excellency Baron Soni will be hosting yet another fishing tournament. Catch & release or catch to take home... your choice.
