Learn Old English with the Wordhoard -- LfG!

If you're in the San Francisco Bay area, and are interested in learning learning Old English, there's someone looking for study partners willing to meet at a cafe near Piedmont Avenue, Grand, or Lakeshore -- wherever the heck those places are. I'm assuming they are relatively easy-to-find spots in SF.

By the way, I have no idea who posted this, so for all I know it could be a serial killer. My apologies if you are the next victim of the dreaded "Old English Assassin." Don't worry, though; he won't get away with it -- that's where Adrian Monk lives.


  1. Hey, that's me! No serial killer here, just an old-school English major with a love of Beowulf! I have one other person interested, so please join us.

    Piedmont Ave, Lakeshore, and Grand Avenue are three nice neighborhoods in North Oakland, in the East Bay. Many nice cafes and such to meet in. Unfortunately, no mead halls...

  2. You might not have mead halls, but at least you'll have plenty of Rice-a-roni.

    Rice-a-roni is "the San Francisco Treat" although now-a-days, I'd say Bi-Rite ice cream is the true San Francisco treat. Oakland has Ici ice cream. Great ice cream is a Bay Area tradition with places like Mitchells, Tuckers, Loards, Dreyers, and Fentons in the "classic" category and Bi-Rite and Ici in the ultra high-end.

    Oakland is kind of the ignored step-sister of SF. Lots of great things here, but overshadowed by SF and to some extent Berkeley.
