ETC SBL dinner

Following the Papyrology session which ends at 6:30 on Monday, we will head over for some classic America dining at the Hard Rock Cafe. We have two sets of reservations. One for those who are on the ball at 7:00 pm with Christian Askeland, and one for those who like to sit around and talk for a while with Peter Head (naturally) at 7:20. The restaurant is one block directly south from the conference hotels and on the left side of the street. Dinner runs between $12 and $20.

  3. Not a "church option," precisely, but an evangelical worship service "on site" that many attend:
    The Institute for Biblical Research (the American "branch" of Tyndale House) sponsors a Worship Service: Sunday, 11/21/2010,7:30 AM to 8:30 AM; Room: Atrium Ballroom AB - Marriott Marquis.

  4. Yes, thanks for that Mike (although I'm not sure that "branch" would be accepted by either party). And that is an excellent initiative of the IBR which I have enjoyed the last couple of years - I hadn't forgotten and shall be there. I was thinking about the Sunday evening actually.

  6. Peter is right about "branch," and as a former Secretary of IBR, I should have known better. I suppose "counterpart" was perhaps the word I was looking for, rather than "branch," with which I will now lash myself five times (perhaps only metaphorically) as penance.

  7. ...you know the Hard Rock Cafe is actually a bar with a food licence, rather than a restarant, and a franchise operated by biker gangs, right?

    - Not that anyone expects one's religious views to influence the important work of textual criticism...for that would be unscientific, I think.
