There will be a gathering of local Oxfordians in Cambridge, Massachusetts,
on May 6th at the Elephant Walk restaurant on Massachusetts Ave, just north of the Red Line stop in Porter Square.

Here’s a copy of the email notice for the dinner that’s making the rounds. Hope to see you there.

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

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:
