OOOh oooh ME ME ME!

If you could see me jumping up and down, you would quickly realize(as I have) that I shouldn't do that in jammies -- ouch!

Nonetheless, I will mark my calendar, and be there (maybe with bells on) on 3/6.

Hee. :twisted:

I admit I have been remiss of late in my duties to all of you. Thank you for the kind words and the "check ins" that I did get.
Life is becoming mine again and not work and puppies.
I would love more info about Irish fest. I am missing those of you that I have met and look forward to meeting those I have yet to meet.

Please hound me with details.

Emerald look forward to finally meeting you. Just a reminder everyone...March 6th 11am at the Scarborough Faire table (where ever it may be :lol: ) and then we can either hang as a group or wander around on our own..for those who have never been ::Shocked gasp:: be sure to watch the weather report the night before and wear comfortable walking shoes. Please bring friends and family as there is a kids area and it always looks like they are having a blast over there.

Heh. Guinness? I don't know, ladyship. We'll see. Considering I don't much care for it, unless you can mix it into a martini some way, I'll have to politely decline.

(If anyone ever put Guinness into a martini, I've got money on it that I would be looking pretty green.)

Whimsy, who's saving her pennies for a FOF pass.

Help me out here...

I can't find ticket prices or good directions.

I know It's off 30 but do I take any other streets?


And for my really dumb question:

Are we wearing garb for this?

Rhia

Ok... I'm gonna be there, but not at 11... We've got a ton of stuff to do and the rogues are jonesing for the Corsairs so we'll be there Saturday night Won't get there until probably 6ish (in time for dinner) and stay until after 11.

It's at Fair Park...

Fair Park is located to the east of downtown Dallas.

From the North: Take US75 southbound towards downtown. On the edge of downtown take the I30 east exit. Exit I30 on First Avenue to Parry. Go left on Parry to Washington Street and enter Fair Park.

From the West: Take I30 eastbound and pass to the south of downtown. Exit I30 on First Avenue to Parry. Go left on Parry to Washington Street and enter Fair Park.

From the South: Take I45 north towards downtown. Just south of downtown take the I30 east exit. Exit I30 on First Avenue to Parry. Go left on Parry to Washington Street and enter Fair Park.

From the East: Take I30 westbound towards downtown. Exit I30 on First Avenue to Parry. Go left on Parry to Washington Street and enter Fair Park.

They specifically say that garb is welcome, although I don't know what everyone is planning...

"Can I wear my kilt?
Well, without it you may embarrass the ladies! Yes, you may wear your kilt, your renaissance garb, your ethnic costume or whatever else you wish. In fact we encourage you to get into the spirit of the event. We do ask, however, that you dress tastefully and not "expose" more than you need to. Gentlemen in kilts especially, watch for those strong March winds!

Knives and guns
Knives and guns will NOT be permitted inside the festival grounds. This includes swords and long knives worn as part of the ethnic dress. A small Sgian Dhub is acceptable. (If you don't know what that is you shouldn't have one!) Knives and swords may be purchased at certain authorized booths under the strict conditions posted at the booth.
"

Tom Thumb said tickets are $14

Hope I get to see a few wenches there... Please post if you are staying that late so we might be able to hook up!

Let's have a show of hands for those who plan to attend in garb! I am still undecided.

Gremco
03-05-2004, 10:01 PM
I'm a yes then.

Nevada

If no one else comes in with a yes by tomarrow morning around 8ish, I'm gonna change to a no.

NTIF was a blast. The weather co-operated with us and it turnrd out to be a wonderful day for fest. My rogue aquired his first Utilikilt and wore it for the rest of fest (just for me) :wink:

We also caught up with a few people we hadn't seen in a while. Gremco made her come back appearance this weekend, after spending the last few months at the Grand Canyon. Emrld was able to meet up with us, which means she was able to get away from the puppies for a time. Vada, against Doctors orders, showed up with her rogue and we were able to share a Guinnis or three with them. :snarf: Todd and Ashley were there in garb, love a man in a kilt (she looked great too.)

That was just a few of the friends we were able to meet up with. Can't wait to do it again at faire.

See you all there,
Isa

I am so happy everyone had a good time. It just wasn't in the financial cards for us this year. I look forward to next year.
I did get to spend a wonderful day with my rogue though - :twisted:
