B’more to face San Fran in super Harbowl, wagers must follow… CS vs ACT!
“Dear Carey and Ellen,
Well, it has finally come to this. After years of friendly coexistence and mutual love and respect, you are now the sworn enemy.
The match has assumed Shakespearean dimensions.
Brother versus brother.
Long lost cousin versus better branch of the family.
Poe’s legacy versus the diggers of the Gold Rush.
Right coast versus left, and good versus evil.
Colleague versus colleague.
All riding on the fateful outcome of the Harbowl.
We proudly wager a dozen of our vaunted Faidley’s Maryland crab cakes against whatever you can rustle up to approximate that - if you dare.
Kwame and Stephen”

Here comes another one, all Poe and just in time for Halloween.
Pub Lab: Single Carrot Theatre’s The Poe Project
Sunday, November 4th, 7pm, Liam Flynn’s Ale House 22 W. North Ave
Single Carrot Theatre’s The Poe Project is an interactive new work derived from the writings of Edgar Allan Poe. This is a unique performance opportunity for the audience to interact with artists and each other, while exploring the reaches of Poe’s indelible poetry and prose.
From haunt of man, from day’s obtrusive glare,
Thou shroud’st thee in the ruin’s ivied tower,
Or in some shadowy glen’s romantic bower,
Where wizard forms their mystic charms prepare,
Where horror lurks, and ever-boding care!
But, at the sweet and silent evening hour,
When closed in sleep is every languid flower,
Thou lov’st to sport upon the twilight air,
Mocking the eye, that would thy course pursue,
In many a wanton-round, elastic, gay,
Thou flitt’st athwart the pensive wanderer’s way,
As his lone footsteps print the mountain-dew.
From Indian isles thou com’st, with summer’s car,
Twilight thy love—thy guide her beaming star!
“To the Bat” by Ann Radcliffe (1764-1823)
in honor of current production of #CSPoe
