All events are free. Brooke is cooking a whole pig and some chickens and biscuits and slaw ($10, all you can eat + $5 for all you can drink). Email us if you’re coming so we can get enough beer and wine.

Gold, silver, and bronze medals are being carved by Emily Thompson as I write! They will feature Winged Victory in Repose.

You must arrive 15 minutes before an event to sign up. If you’ve never been to the Peninsula in Prospect Park, give yourself some extra time. It’s a beautiful spot, but it’s not that easy to find. Here is the Peninsula map.

Hey- can we still RSVP for this? I would love to come with Caleb Zipperer.

Hope we still can!
