Dining Services’ Renaissance Feast, beckoning sirs and mistresses with a hearty “Come sit you down and have a good laugh,” was held in the Capitol Eatery’s “Grand Hall” on Wednesday evening. The Penn College community was invited to attend in costume and enjoy a tasty –  and utensils-optional! – menu that included carved turkey, beer-braised short ribs, roasted root vegetables, corn on the cob, smoked white cheddar mashed potatoes, roasted potato medley, apple pecan bread and berry-filled croustade. In addition, members of the Society for Creative Anachronism were on hand to share their historical expertise about the period.
