Monday, 24 February 2014: Mongoose vs Cobra vs the Gregorian Calendar

mvsclogoOn this day in 1582, Pope Gregory XIII (who once had a rather curious clerical gig as an “abbreviator“) issued a papal bull (that’s more like a decree than a winged horse flying from some gorgon’s neck) reforming the rules around the church calendar. This was to correct the drift of the date of Easter (at the spring equinox) that had occurred since the Council of Nicea in 325, and created the Gregorian Calendar, still in use (with minor modifications) to this day in most of the Western world (and those who have business dealings with it).

Regardless of what you call today, it’s a good day to join us at MvsC, 1011 McGowan, at 8:00 PM tonight for a pint or a mixed drink. Note that the parking situation in midtown is ever-evolving, so consult the handy-dandy, superific, MvsC-specific parking guide before you head that direction.
