The first celebration of Bloomsday
- June 16, the day James Joyce's Ulysses takes place - was a bit late: June 27, 1929. The event was a luncheon to commemorate both Bloomsday and the publication of the French translation of Ulysses earlier that year. It was an overly proper affair; Samuel Beckett, then just a young writer, seems to be the only person who enjoyed the luncheon as he spent most of the occasion drunk.
