  • Shakespeare, two Mondays a month

    Longtime Shakespeare Study Club members Rae Dewey and Esther Rothman, both now deceased, presented a two-part program, “Fools in Shakespeare,” in 2009, with current member Donna Denman looking on. The group was formed as a women’s club in 1904, and has met continuously since then, still with an all-women membership. Copies of annual program booklets dating back to the club’s earliest years are held in the Antiochiana archives. (Submitted photo; scans courtesy of Antiochiana)

    For 113 years, a members-only group of Yellow Springs women has been meeting to read and discuss the works of Shakespeare and other authors. The women call themselves the Shakespeare Study Club, and that middle word — study — signals the group’s seriousness.

  • Bourbon chicken via Mexico

    Crisbin Antonio has been offering bourbon chicken from his food truck parked in the lot at Nipper’s Corner for almost eight years. Originally from Mexico, Antonio learned to make bourbon chicken at the Fairfield Commons mall food court, then later took the dish on the festival circuit before bringing his business to Yellow Springs.

    Crisbin Antonio, whose face and New Orleans Grill food truck are likely more familiar to villagers than is his name, has been in the same spot for nearly eight years, between the Post Office and Nipper’s Corner, selling bourbon chicken.
