Beauty smote his heart, he looked up from the forsaken land & hope returned to him

We’re Not in Hendersonville Anymore

I just got back from a Viking party at Bill’s house: eight guys sitting around Bill’s coffee table eating meat and bread while drinking his home brewed ale. After the meat was consumed Bill broke out his mead (a honey alcohol which he has been waiting to ferment for 2 years) and we listened to various people read passages from Beowulf: Beowulf’s fight with Grendel, a warning about his pride and lastly, his funeral pyre.

Public readings with homemade drink! How cool is that?! (That we all got to try on the chainmail was pretty cool too.)

  2. Not a bad Friday night! Glad you guys had fun.

    Next time you could go to a Renaissance Fair together (I went to one in Raleigh once)… then you can eat legs of mutton, drink ale, wear armor, and watch jousting all at the same time.

  3. Yes, but in Beowulf they never warn you about the mead-hangover. I’ve got Grendel in my head.

  4. How completely cool! What a way to imbibe such a long-expected mead!
