The Texas Renaissance Fair, home of some great buns!

I had a chance to visit the Texas Renaissance Fair on the first weekend of November 2010. I came here expecting a lot but was completely overwhelmed – not only by the size of the Fairgrounds but by the number of people and acts going on. I was there for two full days and don’t think I saw everything. The people watching was incredible – ah, this was really a photographer’s dream come true.

Barely Balanced puttting on a great show at the Arizona Renaissance Fair

Barely Balanced is a group of three very talented and probably unbalanced acrobats that put some very incredible shows at the Arizona Renaissance Fair in February 2011. This group is absolutely fantastic and worth making an extra effort to check them out.

The weather over the weekend wasn’t nice – Saturday was very cold and wet and Sunday was windy – I know BB was worried about the conditions but they still put on some fantastic shows.

Masonic Temple (1929) (now Renaissance Providence Hotel)
– 5 Avenue of the Arts – Looking West from Prospect Terrace.

The former Masonic Temple building (never completed due to construction stopping at the time of the Great Depression in 1929) is now the Renaissance Providence Hotel (opened 2007), a great symbol of the success of the Most Endangered Properties List. After being on the List for ten years, all of Providence was able to watch this “white elephant” transform into a luxury hotel. This project has been called “the largest historic restoration project in Rhode Island history”.

Men in Tights Party – The Renaissance Revelers – Informal

While this is not all of us, many of the people in this pic belong to the madrigals group that I sing with – The Renaissance Revelers. We try to get together on an annual basis for a "Men in Tights" party. This is basically a party when we get together to watch Men in Tights, and eat lots of food, and generally have a jolly good time. This year we watched 2 movies. First we watched the original, but colorized, Robin Hood (starring Errol Flynn). Then we ate a big dinner from Lebanese Taverna (in Arlington, Virginia) and watched Men in Tights. Altogether it was a great evening. :o)

Shelbourne Hotel Dublin, Republic of Ireland:

The Shelbourne Hotel is a famous hotel situated in a landmark building on the north side of St Stephen’s Green, in Dublin, Ireland. Currently operated by Marriott International’s Renaissance Hotel brand, the hotel has 265 rooms in total and reopened in March 2006 after undergoing an eighteen-month refurbishment.

=====

John McCurdy designed the hotel and the studio of M. M. Barbezet of Paris cast the four external statues, two Nubian Princesses and their shackled slave girls.

=====

The Shelbourne Hotel was founded in 1824 by Tipperaryman Martin Burke, when he acquired three adjoining townhouses overlooking Dublin’s St Stephen’s Green – Europe’s largest garden square. Burke named his grand new hotel The Shelbourne, after William Petty, 2nd Earl of Shelburne.

=====

In the early 1900s, Alois Hitler, Jr, the half brother of Adolf Hitler, worked in the hotel while in Dublin.

=====

In 1922, the hotel played a very important part in the founding of the Irish nation when the Irish Constitution was drafted in room 112, now known as The Constitution Room.

=====

WIKIPEDIA = The Shelbourne, A Renaissance Hotel Dublin = AN IRISH ICON

=====

About the Renaissance Hotel brand by Marriott International:

Renaissance Hotels is a worldwide brand of hotels and resorts. The brand is owned by Marriott International and many Renaissance Hotels are managed by Marriott, however some are operated under a franchise license.

=====

Renaissance Hotels, Resorts and Suites cater to an upmarket segment of the traveling public. While initially acquired by Marriott as a secondary-brand, in recent years Renaissance has established itself as a boutique-like hotel chain.

=====

Renaissance Hotels was founded in 1982 as Ramada Renaissance Hotels, the upscale division of Ramada Inns, Inc.

=====

In 1989 the bulk of the Ramada hospitality and franchise system was acquired by New World Development Company of Hong Kong (the U.S. rights to the Ramada name were sold to Prime Hospitality), and the former Ramada Corp. was renamed Aztar Corp. New World established Renaissance as a stand-alone brand.

=====

In 1993, New World acquired Stouffer Hotels from Nestle and folded the Stouffer hotels into the Renaissance chain. New World took their management and franchising company public, while retaining ownership of many of the individual hotels through its CTF Holdings subsidiary.

=====

In 1997 Marriott acquired the Netherlands-incorporated Renaissance Hotel Group N.V., and retained the Renaissance brand, while eventually shedding the Ramada International business in phases to Cendant Corp. In 2005 Marriott acquired most of the remaining New World/CTF owned Renaissance Hotels in North America and Europe, with the intent of selling them under long-term management and/or franchise contracts.

=====

Bonjour, Au revoir, yep, brush up on your French if you want to go to France… or you could just pop in for a coffee and yummy French pastries at La Renaissance Patisserie!

We had a great lamb ragout in a pie, packed with juicy tender lamb, tomato, orsemary and not much else! We also got a Le Gateaux Noisette, a dense cake packed with hazelnut flavour and topped with more hazelnuts. I wonder if the cake was made with hazelnut meal as well!
