I apologize that a lot of the pictures will be blurry. The light was low given that it was all candlelight! This is the inside of the main room in the Market Square Tavern.

The entrance into the room cleared for dancing. It was quite smokey given that I don't think the flue was open when they first started the fire in the fireplace.

Given the room cleared for dancing was filled with smoke, everyone gathered outside in the hallway.

Out in the hallway, both doors to the outside were left open. Thank goodness it was a mild night! There was a ton of food placed out on tables in the hallway.

These cookies were delicious! They were a lemony shortbread, each stamped with reproduction stamps from the 17th, 18th, and 19th centuries!

The angle is funny because I was attempting to take photos by keeping the camera on the table to steady it a bit.
