Smithsonian Article: Sherlock Holmes' London

Our hardy group shares the love of the "grand game" and the comraderie that comes from braving the foggy streets of London to climb the 17 stairs at 221B Baker Street and sit by the fire with Holmes and Watson. The pleasures are many and we welcome anyone with the passion for these armchair adventures.
The Denizens meet regularly on a biannual (Fall and Spring) basis.

Easton Life Magazine Article

Star Democrat-Addicted to Sherlock

Sherlock Holmes, literature's most popular character, is alive and well on Maryland's Eastern Shore. Sherlockians Joe and Chris Wilke and Mary Ann Bradley and Mike Whelan are organizing a program and dinner for a new Baker Street Irregulars' scion called

"The Denizens of the Bar of Gold"

at the Tidewater Inn on Saturday evening December 11th, 1993. This scion (son of) will be one of over 200 literary societies loosely associated with the Baker Street Irregulars, the parent organization founded by Christopher Morley in New York City in 1934.

The Bar of Gold gets its name from the notorious opium den in the Holmes short story, "The Man with the Twisted Lip." In Holmes' own words, he described it

"We (Holmes and Watson) should be rich men if we had 1000 pounds for every poor devil who has been put to death in that den. It is the vilest murder trap in the whole riverside...."
