The Newfoundland members of the Canadian Chapter of the Transylvanian Society of Dracula celebrated the Centennial Year of Stoker's Dracula with a "Transylvanian Weekend" on October 3-6, 1997. While some of the events were for members and guests only, two events were open to the public:

A PUBLIC LECTURE by Dr. Raymond McNally (Boston College) on the topic "Vlad the Impaler (Dracula): A Case Study in Terror". Dr. McNally is a world renowned historian whose books include In Search of Dracula, Dracula: A Biography of Vlad the Impaler and Dracula: Prince of Many Faces. He has made numerous appearances on TV documentaries on A&E and Discovery Channel.

Dr. McNally also gave an illustrated talk on the 1922 German movie "Nosferatu".

TSD members and guests (including McNally) held a special Transylvanian Dinner. All of the food was from traditional Transylvanian recipes, and included all of the items mentioned by Jonathan Harker in the early chapters of Dracula: mamaliga, impletata, chicken paprika hendl, and "robber steak". Also on hand was a goodly supply of Romanian "tuica" (plum brandy) with a "Vlad Tepes" label!
