PERIOD COOKS NIGHT
We're having Period Cooks Night on the 1st Friday of the month in the Northwest Suburbs of Chicago. There's a different theme each month. Some meetings we plan to invite a Guest Chef to come and demonstrate/show us how a certain item is cooked and learn from that experienced person.
Normally, each person attending brings a period recipe (from the theme we've chosen for that month) and the ingredients to cook the dish, but we all get together and cook it together and then we sample all the dishes that night together! We comment on them, take notes, and make suggestions on how to improve them.

GREY GARGOYLES/AYRETON A&S AFTERNOONS
For the past several months, we've had a growing number of people showing up at Ayreton combined fighter practice on Sundays at Ida Noyes to do casual A&S, gab, et cetera. We hope to begin introducing some beginners tutorials in various arts
and sciences during these meets soon, and I think many of these will be
of great interest to the Ayreton populace as a whole. Timing coincides with the Ayreton fighter practices.
