“bursting into an explosion of laughter” [STUD] 

The Baker Street Irregulars Weekend is just wrapping up in New York, where the Irregulars and other Sherlockians have spent eating and drinking their way through Midtown.

Each year, we gather to celebrate the birthday of Sherlock Holmes, which traditionally has been marked as January 6. But it leads us to wonder: would Sherlock Holmes have celebrated his own birthday?

Baker Street Elementary follows the original adventures of Sherlock Holmes and John Watson, as they and their friends work through the issues of elementary school in Victorian London. An archive of all previous episodes can be viewed at www.bakerstreetelementary.org.
