Celebrate the Year of the Goat with the Boston Chapter of the Robert Benchley Society

The Boston "We've Come for the Davenport" Chapter of the Robert Benchley Society will hold its monthly Roundup at the Downtown Harvard Club, high above Boston town on the 38th floor of One Federal Street, in the Financial District. We'll gather at the Crimson Pub on Thursday, February 19th, beginning at 5:30 p.m. It's also the start of Chinese New Year and Executive Sous Chef Steven Boothroyd will prepare delicious complimentary appetizers.

Dress code is informal or business casual. For more information, contact David Trumbull at david@robertbenchley.org.

"There is an old Chinese proverb which says: "There are more ways than one to wear out a pair of shoes," and I think it is a very good motto for each and every one of us to take as a guide for our daily lives." --Robert Benchley, from the essay "Wear-Out-a-Shoe Week," as published in My Ten Years in a Quandary and How They Grew (1936).
