January 10, 2009

is approximately a year away. While for many this will be a date like any other date, for a select group of Cicero enthusiasts this will 2,056 year anniversary of the death of the greatest orator that the world has ever known. At this party, there will be vast mounds of chickpeas served, in both hummus and boiled with some goat cheese. There will be wine, but no philosophy. Instead, angry declamations against the Roman Empire and Octavian, as well as Marcus Antoninus will be read out. Bring your friends.
