- Mar 12, 2011Greetings,
Very cool idea. Once we start getting real local Colonies going, we can hopefully start doing some public events. I used to do a public Roman Market Day for Nova Roma, where we offered a day of Roman food, shopping, presentations, etc. (I've only mentioned this what, a thousand times?)
The Roman food was always a big hit. If there was a simple Byzantine menu (say three or four simple foods one might eat at lunch) that could be offered I'm sure it would be very popular. :)
