Nagspeake Winter Getaways–They’re Not Just For Tourists!

As winter works its magic on the Magothy watershed, many of us find ourselves stuck indoors weighing the merits of an emergency hot chocolate run and wishing we were at least frozen someplace where there wasn’t laundry staring us in the face and a sinkful of dishes on top of our favorite tumbler, the one that makes even a cheap… (more…)

January at the Olina Museum: Urban Wilderness, Mysterious Mathematickal Art, and the Return of the Old Iron Project

Happy New Year, my lovelies! It’s January on the Magothy, and you know what that means (or maybe you don’t): the much-awaited re-opening of the Olina Museum in the Printer’s Quarter. Nagspeakers have been waiting five years for the Olina to swing wide its doors after the destruction of the Walker Folkways Wing in what has been variously described as… (more…)

Killer Real Estate Opportunity in Historic Printer’s Quarter!

Love the NBTC? Want to work here?? Well, you can’t. Or rather, you can’t work at the NBTC, because between Kate and Miranda we have plenty of people to get our coffee and make sure our paperclips are all perfectly flat with the loops all exactly in line. (Because nothing makes inter-office correspondence less professional than bent-up paperclips, as everyone… (more…)

The Funicular Railway

The Ledge: Why the Funicular Railway Ends in the Middle of Nowhere The passengers to make the inaugural climb on the Funicular Railway included four of the city’s top ranking officials, a cub reporter who had no business being there, and a man nobody in Nagspeake is sure ever existed. The uncertain man read a poem, and in so doing,… (more…)

Local Theatre

Theatre in Nagspeake is a city-wide affair; more than one innocent bystander has been unexpectedly drawn in by the sudden apparition of drama on what was, moments before, a perfectly quiet and unassuming street.  And when theatre springs up in Nagspeake, there’s no easy distinction between spectator and event. As far as the “legitimate” theatre goes, there are only three… (more…)

Local Cinema

Nagspeake boasts several film houses, one of which is guaranteed to be showing exactly what you’re in the mood for. If you’re looking for first-run films, your best bet is the Tenefort 5-Plex in Bayside, but for more adventurous souls there are plenty more options to explore–you’ll find some of them below! For classics and a selection of more recent… (more…)

Accommodations

Do you like luxury? Is your vacation not complete without Egyptian cotton bedding (minimum 800 thread count) and a room service menu worthy of framing? Or do you prefer the home comforts and care of a bed-and-breakfast, where the smell of coffee and homemade pastries is the perfect wake-up call? Are you all business when you travel, because it’s just… (more…)

The Basilica of St. Horace Rye, Creve Coeur

Signs and Portents and Stained Glass Saint Horace Rye is a perfect example of why people continue to search for meaning–or if not meaning, than evidence of something more than plain everyday squalor–in Shantytown. It’s a persistent myth, and the extent to which people talk about it is inversely proportional to the extent to which people believe it.  Something significant… (more…)

Nagspeake: A Magothy Jewel

Here’s another spot where we hope to have the kind of encyclopedic information that will be the alpha and omega for visitors as well as schoolchildren assigned “Nagspeake” as a topic. On the other hand, Willie Cobblebridge is nominally in charge of writing this page, and we started this project three years ago* and he still hasn’t submitted his content.… (more…)
