I sent a reservation in for Jordan and myself to
attend Winter Feast right after Nikoli announced it on
our Endewearde list a couple of months ago.
I am tempted to go elsewhere because the King and
Queens Fencing Championships are being held in Vermont
on that same day, but ..... a few hours down to
Malagentia and back on the same day is much more
affordable and easier to travel to.
I've attended their past "yule" feasts at their
previous site and it is an enjoyable evening. The food
is wonderful, the dancing will be very nice, and I
think there are other performance entertainments. And
it's one of the few times I get to wear a dress (I'm
reluctant to seriously try to fence in skirts - too
much of a tomboy).
You should cross post to Endewearde cooks guild and
tempt them to send a few "spys" to the feast. It's all
in the name of period research.
