Alex (theyepizzone) and I scored some free tickets to the Renaissance Pleasure Faire for this past Sunday. If you haven't been there yet, you should check it out.
And the faire is not as far as it used to. They were located off of Glen Helen Parkway which is waaay out there, where it gets really hot around this time. They are now located at the Santa Fe Dam Recreation Area in Irwindale off of Arrow Hwy. So Close!
Anyway, we went to see one of their entertainment shows. The one in particular was called the Bold & Stupid Men show. It is described as : Our swashbuckling duo deliver "lessons in gentlemanly behavior" amidst a flurry of daring sword play and a rollicking war of wits, and never fail to win the affections of unsuspecting ladies in the audience.
This was a very entertaining show where these two guys in renaissance tights get the men of the audience to woo their women. One of the guys asked the women to raise their hands if they came with a "fine man you call your own." Well, I didn't want to insult Alex so I raised my hand shoulder height. Sure enough one of the guys came up to me and asked me if the gentleman next to me was "mine". I said yes, and he suggested I raise my hand a little higher. No matter...he pulled Alex onstage along with about 7 other guys. Gotcha Alex!
He had them perform certain acts onstage such as "place your hand on your hips, stick your chest out and smile at your maiden" or "look at your maiden and stretch out your arm and raise her up as if on a pedistal."
Of course, I had my camera out.
But I wasn't out of the woods yet. They had us women stand up...oh geeze...had our men strut back to us and made them give us a "romantic" kiss.
It was worth the embarrassment!
