Ep59Every year in the cold depths of January, Sherlockians descend on Manhattan for Sherlock Holmes’ birthday. This madness is referred to as BSI Weekend and is a series of dinners, galas, balls, and lots of alcohol.

BSB Ashley, Kristina, and Maria talk you through this years festivities including our own charity ball, the invitation only BSI Dinner, the Gaslight Gala, and Drunk Canon at O’Lunney’s.

This year was particularly important as it was the first time BSB Maria was able to come and meet her fellow American Babes, and BSB leader Kristina was invested into the Baker Street Irregulars.
