OK, the sky is grey, but according to the weather Chanel the rain is going to stay away. But I been bitten by this before and the radar shows rain over Philly.
> I am postponing practice until 1pm today to make sure, please check back at 12pm to make sure practice will not be canceled.
It seems that spring is finally here. If the weather holds, which it looks like it will, the next dance practice will be on Tues., May 17 from 6:30-9:00 PM at Belvedere Castle in Central Park.
Everyone is welcome to join us for practice; no prior dance experience required… Practices are held in street clothes, as many are traveling after work.
We’ll meet in the grassy area of Shakespeare’s garden if it is open. If you follow the "From the West Side" http://northpass.eastkingdom.org/DancePractice_CentralPark.html the grassy area is the "little clearing" before you reach the castle steps. We are typically near the bench on the left side. Once it gets dark OR if the grass isn’t open we move atop the castle. If you cannot find us, please phone (sometimes there is traffic, sometimes we are on the castle if the grass is soggy, etc.). If you will be arriving after 7:30 phoning is also advised (however, if we are mid-dance we may miss your call, please leave a message).
To find us atop the castle… If you are coming from the west side, once you climb the steps you can find us congregated by the wall slightly to the left of the little covered alcove in front of you. From the east side once you go up the steps at the back of the castle we’ll be to the left near the wall before the little covered alcove.
If it’s raining we meet under the overhang up top. If severe weather is in the forecast please check your email or call us on dance practice days; we’ll make a decision by 2 PM if we’re going to cancel practice.
Tuesdays weather permitting
For more info or questions, please email or phone.

The Manuscript Cookbook Conference will be held May 12-13, 2016 at Fales Library and Special Collections, New York University.
The Manuscript Cookbook Conference will bring together professional and amateur researchers with an interest in manuscript cookbooks from many centuries. Tens of thousands of these documents are in existence, many now listed online in the ongoing Manuscript Cookbooks Survey database. Some have ended up in libraries and historical societies, while others remain in private collections. They are invaluable resources for scholars in a variety of fields, including history, economics, anthropology, nutrition, sociology, and, of course, food studies. Unlike published material, manuscript cookbook can honestly be called unique, even though many of them, especially those written after 1800, include recipes lifted verbatim from published sources. They can often offer better insight into historical diet, cooking methods, available ingredients, and taste preferences than printed works by professional chefs or cookbook writers.
There is no registration fee, but space is limited.
