Turning Of The Seasons
If you've ever talked music with me, bumped into me at the Texas Renaissance Festival, or read my review of the band Wine And Alchemy, you know just how much of a fan I am of the group.  I first fell in love with this wonderful band four years ago when I attended the Texas Renaissance Festival for the first time.  Since then, I've made sure to check out at least one of their multiple …

Clan Tynker
Every single year that I've visited the Texas Renaissance Festival, I've made sure that the first performance I see is Clan Tynker.  Why?  Because they are funny, charming, extremely talented, appeal to all ages, and always start off my day and/or weekend with a bang.      Santiago, Serendipity, Sam, Rebekah, and Elijah each bring their own set …

The Steele Sisters
I've visited the Texas Renaissance Festival four years in a row.  I simply love visiting there each year.  Last year I took in a performance of the Steele Sisters.  The sisters, Gertrude and Gwendolyn, square off against one another in pursuit of a husband (or in the case of "Pirate Adventure" weekend, a first mate).  The sister who successfully finds a husband first …

Smoked Turkey Legs
If you've ever stepped foot into the gates of just about any Renaissance faire or festival, you've exposed your nose to the wonderful smell of smoked turkey legs.  If you've ever tasted one of these wonders of smoke, you know just how delicious they really are.      I grew up with smoked turkey.  Every Thanksgiving my father would smoke turkey until it was …

With a fiddler keeping time and barely any other sounds, Arsene takes the stage at multiple renaissance festivals and captivates the audience with magic, humor, and heart.  I've witnessed his stage show every year that I've gone to the Texas Renaissance Festival and he has yet to disappoint me or anyone else in the audience.      Arsene's show involves himself, …

Brown Monk's Robe
I purchased this brown monk robe and hood costume with one thing in mind: I have never dressed up to go to the Texas Renaissance Festival and decided that 2012 would be the year I'd finally do it. This will be my fourth year to attend this wonderful event and I decided to go as a monk, simple and easy to put together.      While looking online for a decent costume, I found …

Wine And Alchemy
I've been visiting the Texas Renaissance Festival for three years now.  I plan to attend for a fourth time next year.  Despite having been to this festival so many times, one thing that somehow escaped my ears until my visit this year was the wonderful sounds and dances of Wine and Alchemy.       I stood near the back of the Dove Meadow stage and became entranced …

Renaissance Clothing
Whenever I attend the Texas Renaissance Festival or look up other festivals on the web or television, I'm always amazed by the clothing and costumes people wear. Of course, "Renaissance" is a term loosely used at many of these festivals (Exactly what do pirates have to do with the Renaissance period?), and that applies to the fashions at these events as well.      …

The Texas Renaissance Festival
On the weekend of October 22-23, myself and a friend headed out to Plantersville, TX for a fun-filled weekend at the Texas Renaissance Festival.  It was my third visit to this wonderful festival and my friend's first time to go to any event of this type.       Up until just a few weeks before the event, I wasn't sure if we'd be able to make it this year due …

Chaucer's Mead
An excellent mead that's not too sweet and is very filling as well!
