For the record, William Shakespeare was born in April 1564 and died in April 1616. But October is when Southern Nevada celebrates the Bard of Avon, as the Las Vegas Shakespeare Company hosts its 25th anniversary of Shakespeare in the Park with performances of "A Midsummer Night’s Dream" throughout Henderson. Get in the mood with Guinness barbecue wings, chips and curry, pear and blue cheese salad, Caribbean chicken salad and turkey chili in a sourdough bread bowl.
