Invitation to dine at Elephant Walk in Cambridge, MA on May 6, 2011

Bill Boyle, Alex McNeil, and Marie Merkel report that although there will be no authorship seminar in Watertown this year, they will host a dinner in Cambridge. Here is their invitation:

The Shakespeare Oxford Spring Dinner 
When: Friday, May 6, 2011
Cocktails at 6:30; Dinner at 7:30
Where: The Elephant Walk, 2067 Massachusetts Avenue, Cambridge, MA
Why: Much to talk about in 2011!

In the spring of 2009 and 2010, we enjoyed a day-long seminar at the Watertown Free Public Library. This year we thought it would be good to relaunch the evening dinner of years past. There is so much news in the Oxfordian community this year, with the upcoming premiere of Roland Emmerich's blockbuster film Anonymous, the expected completion of two documentaries, Cheryl Eagan-Donovan's Nothing Truer Than Truth and Laura and Lisa Wilson's Last Will and Testament (working title), as well as the long-awaited publication of Richard Roe's The Shakespeare Guide to Italy. Please join us for an evening of good food and good company, in a private room that's ours till 10 p.m.

Dinner will be $40 per person. This includes dinner, taxes and gratuities and appetizers for the cocktail hour. The three-course dinner includes a choice of appetizer, choice of entree and choice of dessert from the "Tasting Menu," a delightful way to experience The Elephant Walk's Cambodian and French cuisine. There will be a cash bar for cocktails or other beverages.

Directions: The Elephant Walk (617-492-6900) is just west of Porter Square, a short walk from the Red Line Porter Square Station, and on the 77 bus line. The restaurant is located in the red brick building across from Walden Street. There is free parking in a lot behind the restaurant.

We will meet downstairs in the restaurant's private party room. Wheelchair accessible through elevator.

RSVP by May 5, 2011. Please include your full name and number attending to:

Payment may be made at the restaurant on the day of the event by cash or check only; NO CREDIT CARDS PLEASE!
