Festival of Manliness II

browns festival of manliness 2013 logoBrown's is once again hosting The Festival of Manliness -- "a festival devoted to all things manly" on January 20. The event is a wild game beer dinner with cigars, drawings that include a European beer trip, and the NFC championship game on the big screen in Rev Hall.

On the menu for the dinner: "Duck 'n Boar Salad, Whiskey Porter Braised Red Deer Osso Bucco, Llama Ribeye Steaks with Rosemary Parmesan Crusted Fingerling Potatoes and Salted Caramel Bourbon Cheesecake."

Tickets are $75 person. It's a benefit for Pints for Prostates, which encourages prostate cancer screenings.

And because this question came up last year, from the press release: "Women are more than welcome to attend."

Do the cigars have to go outside or a special smoking room? I can't imagine watching the game with lots of cigar smoke - and I even like cigars.

The cigars will be smoked on the back deck until after dinner, then guest may smoke them inside. Last year there was adequate ventilation - but it's definitely a cigar event!

A perfect circle! The participants will need prostate cancer screenings after eating all that meat!

WHAT KIND OF MAN EATS WELL DONE MEAT?
NICE STUPID STUDY SCIENCE.

If you've never checked out a Friends meeting (Quakers), I recommend giving it a go. I'm Jewish, but have been sporadically attending Friends meetings for several years. We sit in silence. There's no pastor. The idea is that G-d is within all of us, and if someone's truly and deeply compelled to speak, they share their message. Sometimes it's a full hour of silence and then at the end of the meeting we share joys and sorrows and community updates and you realize that the people sitting silently beside you are some of the most engaged, empathetic, and fair-minded activists around.
