Challenge the Mari Lwyd to a Battle of Wits

Chestnuts are roasting over an open fire and Jack Frost is nipping at your nose… when suddenly there comes a rapping at your door.
You throw open the door expecting to see carolers and instead: the great mare! A horse’s skull gleams down at you, eyes glowing with an otherworldly glint. The Mari Lwyd challenges you to a battle of wits!

The Mari Lwyd is an ancient Welsh Yule time tradition. The Mari Lwyd, or grey mare, travels from home to home, challenging residents to a battle of wits! Those who lose to the Mari Lwyd must invite the grey mare and her entourage in for drinks and hospitality.

Do you have what it takes to best the Mari Lwyd?

Join us Sunday, Dec 19th at 4 pm for an open mic competition!

Bring your poetry slam, comedy routines, rap battle, or any other open mic performance you think will cause the Mari Lwyd to admit defeat. Winners earn prizes by Scale & Feather Meadery! If you best the Mari Lwyd, you could win a Scale & Feather gift card or 5 oz tasting glass!

Scale & Feathery is a production meadery with a Medieval tavern-themed tasting room. They are locally owned and operated in Avondale. Besides their signature (and delicious) meads, Scale & Feather is loved for their D&D gaming events!
