Every good Sherlockian weekend needs a time to get to meet and mingle with your fellow students of the Holmes schooling you're about to enjoy. And "Holmes in the Heartland 2023: Arch Enemies," the last weekend in July in St. Louis is no exception.
On Friday night, after you've found your own favorite dining spot and feasted, back at the hotel we'll be having a little dessert and drinks reception we're calling "Just Desserts For The Professor," because . . . well, it's just desserts. And drinks (a cash bar for those who need something as stiff as the professor post-Reichenbach). But that's not everything.
What would a Moriarty-themed reception be without a few nods to London's greatest criminal mastermind of all time?
You might not be Porlock, but you still might want to have your Moriarty organization alias handy. You might get to see a display by Professor Moriarty's favorite post-Greuze artist. (And maybe a Greuze or two.) Will the Professor have an evil scheme in play beneath the cover of a simple welcome reception for attendees of Holmes in the Heartland? Or will he accept his "just desserts?"
It's planned to run from from 7:00 P.M. to 10:00 PM that Friday eve, so if you're attending Holmes in the Heartland you will have an excellent chance to find out. Unless Sherlock Holmes decides to inconvenience, incommode, or absolutely hamper our plans, it should be a great start to a great weekend!
