The most famous day in literature: June 16th 1904:
Leopold Bloom wakes up, eats a kidney for breakfast, attends a funeral, contemplates his wife's impending adultery, befriends a drunken poet, and wanders Dublin's redlight district.
It's also the date when Bloom's creator, a Mr James Joyce, first strolled his fabled city with Nora Barnacle, whom he would soon make his wife.
Celebrate the day by picking up Ulysses. Experience a true gift to the English language, impress your friends and build upper body strength all at the same time.
