Faire Game

Did jousters chow down on gyros and courtly maidens quaff cappuccini? Had Friar Tuck a Web site? No matter. The 21st annual New York Renaissance Faire, held recently in the quaint shire of Tuxedo, New York, may have a rather fanciful relationship with historical verisimilitude, but where else might one enjoy living chess games, turtle races, father and son knifethrowers, and a handy program that suggests you opt for "How stands the hour?" and "Whither the privy?" when inquiring after time and toilets? --Lynn Yaeger
