    THIS READING (Consult this page as the date approaches) CURRENT SHAKESPEARE-NIGHT SCHEDULE For at least the duration of the coronavirus quarantine, we will meet every Monday evening via Zoom. If you RSVP "Yes" to a Meetup, the Zoom link will be sent to you the day of the meetup. It has recently become our custom to celebrate the completion of the evening's reading with a small party. You'll have to BYOB, but be prepared to lift a glass of your favorite libation to your webcam and enjoy each others' virtual company while we have a drink and chat about this and that. The schedule will be as follows: • 1st and 3d Mondays: Homer's Odyssey • 2nd and 4th Mondays: Bocaccio's Decameron • 5th Mondays: Something different, usually an open mic. NOTE ON THE DECAMERON The "frame story" is that 10 young people go from Florence to the countryside to escape the Black Death. They each tell a story to the others on each of 10 days, so there are 100 stories. The stories are usually referred to using notation such as III.x, meaning day 3, story 10. My initial guess is that we will eventually get through about 5 stories an evening, but we will adjust up or down as needed as we proceed. Most days have a separate Introduction, which we will refer to using notation like I.intro. There is also an introduction to the entire volume, called the "Proem". FORTHCOMING READINGS Fifth Monday: • November 30, 2020: Special program, to be announced. Homer's Odyssey: • October 19, 2020: Books 9-10 Bocaccio's Decameron: • October 26, 2020: Start Day VI.

    Hack Manhattan

    We have gone virtual to do our part in helping to curb this pandemic. Join us via https://zoom.us/j/601665179 There are plenty of places in the world where people come together to use their technical and creative knowhow to accomplish some utilitarian goal or another. These places are often called jobs. Hack Manhattan isn't one of those places. Here, we make things for the joy of seeing if we can, and for the fun of sharing the solutions we hack together with others who also enjoy making and hacking for their own sake. Do you have a project you're working on? One that you've been meaning to return to? Bring it and share what you're doing as you work on it at our open house! Is your project too big to easily transport? Bring photos to show others and be prepared to receive feedback and ideas! Is your project still in the conceptual stages? Come ready to tell others the story of what you want to create. It's an opportunity for brainstorming! Whether it's woodworking or electronics, programming or craftwork, Hack Manhattan is a makerspace where people come together to learn through doing, because making stuff is fun! [Note: The last Tuesday of the month is our monthly business meeting. It usually lasts less than 30 minutes.]
