Turkey Legs of Yore
Hear ye, hear ye! Gather 'round and rejoice ye North Texans, for 'tis a wond'rous time in the Year of Our Lord 2006: It's the season for Scarborough Motha-effin' Ren Fest, bitches! Bust out your corsets (pun intended), your man-tights, your bigass turkey legs and mugs o' mead, because somebody's about to get medieval on your ass--fo' real. Let's be honest, there aren't a whole lot of reasons to drive out to a big field in Waxahachie, but the best damned Renaissance fair in the whole world is one of them. Other reasons include: scoring some backwoods meth and shootin' varmintsjust kidding. Sure, a lot of people think us Texans are just simple-minded rednecks, but the fact that we have a month and a half of falconry, swordplay and historical demonstrations of the Gutenberg press shows that, in fact, we do give a shit about history and, um, European stuff. Plus, turkey legs. I did mention the turkey legs, right? Scarborough Faire runs every weekend at 2511 FM 66 in Waxahachie from Saturday through May 29 from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. You can also get your turkey legs on Memorial Day. Tickets are $6.50 to $18.99 for a day pass, and season passes (more turkey legs!) are $55 to $80. Visit scarboroughrenfest.com.
Saturdays, Sundays, 10 a.m.-7 p.m. Starts: April 8. Continues through May 29
