Five major feasts are in the making. Two merit early notice. On Thursday, September 26, an evening of Japanese cuisine and entertainment precedes the symposium on "Entrepreneurship: The JapaneseAmerican Connection." Besides Japanese delicacies and a martial arts demonstration, a drumming group, Kinnara Taiko, will perform their unique mixture of drumming and dance. One night later the ambience becomes European as Herr Bauer hosts the third annual "Oktoberfest." After the last resounding chorus of "In Munchen steht ein Hofbrauhaus," you'll leave this feast exhausted from dancing and joyously stuffed.
Among the regularly scheduled events, try "The Wednesday Lunch"-no advance reservations required. Students, faculty, and administrators are encouraged to invite each other for food and discussion "on the house" Save the first Sunday morning of each month to enjoy Harald Bauer's famous brunch. And don't overlook afternoon tea, 3:00-4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, in the Athenaeum library.
Finally, an old CMC custom-"The Game of the Week"-will be revived. Beginning September 27, and each Friday noon thereafter during the football season, Coach John Zinda will bring expertise, wit, and film to preview upcoming Stag gridiron contests and assess games past. Another fascinating occasion with Coach Zinda will occur on Thursday noon, September 26, when he discusses his efforts to introduce American football into Japan.
Light-hearted fun, as well as serious thinking, always has its place at the Athenaeum. If there are things you want to happen here, please contact Cindy Wayne or me at x8244.
