If you didn't get on the RSVP list from the earlier post and get the e-mail version of what lies below, here's some new details on the Dangling Prussian pub night on January 14, along with a registration link. The word will start getting spread further this weekend, but, hey, you're special!
You are invited to Pub Night at the Dangling Prussian on Zoom..
When: Jan 14, 2022 06:00 PM Eastern Time (US and Canada)
Register in advance for this gathering:
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.
The Schedule (all Eastern Time U.S.)
6:00 to 8:00, Happy Hour
Join for general chat and wander the tables of the pub for conversation and friendly faces. Zoom might call them “breakout rooms,” but we’re reserving them under the names …
The Brett party’s table (perhaps to discuss television)
The Rathbone party's table (perhaps to discuss movies)
The Starrett party's table (perhaps to discuss pastiche)
The Watson party's table (perhaps to discuss the Canon)
The Morley party's table (perhaps to discuss the Sherlockiana)
I mean, folks at any table can talk about whatever they’re going to talk about, of course. And from 7:00 to 10:00, pub trivia questions will be randomly sent out to the tables. If the occupants of said table at that moment can answer that question in a private message in the chat to the host, their table scores a point, and a winning table will eventually be announced. (Not being a formal competition, you can always jumps table and beef up an underdog’s points — it’s really just about the fun.)
Also, you can get inducted into the Montague Street Incorrigibles upon entry, should you so wish. There’s a small ceremonial bit.
8:00 to 9:00, As Formal A Program As You’re Going To See
There will be toasting, first and foremost, and some entertainments are currently being lined up. Again, this is going to be about the fun. No serious presentations on pub night.
9:00 to Midnight, Anything That Didn’t Get Done Earlier
You’ve heard of rap battles, but have you ever heard of a limerick brawl? Now you have. Singing? Dancing? Reports from any other events or misadventures in the rest of the world that night? Who knows, it’s a Zoom party.
