Am I more famous than Botticelli? Our entertainment for the evening was trying to ascertain whose names we had on our foreheads. What happens when an archivist and an art critic are in your midst? You might end up flailing (ie: failing) to guess Frans Hals the Elder or Borromini. You might feel inspired to read more about Dutch portrait painting and Italian architecture. Either way, you’ll remember the meal, the company and the event.
