LBV came through with some really amazing food, and there was plenty of it. That's always a gripe of mine when I'm at an event with passed appetizers: they come around infrequently and I can only eat half of the selections, if that. But they made enough food for all of us (I saw several people refusing plates towards the end) and they were all vegetarian and vegan choices. Super delicious!
The space was the perfect size for a smaller event, and everyone appeared to be having a great time. In fact, when I left at 10:00pm, every seat at the bar was still full. Since the space was kind of limited, we had to pre-sell tickets to the event, but we're hoping to be able to avoid that in the future.
Johnny and I are starting to scope out patio spaces for the next Pink Elephants. To sit outside and enjoy the weather, of course, but we'd also love to invite some pets to start joining us. So many restaurants and so many animal charities to choose from! I got some great suggestions last night and I invite you to keep them coming.
Doing anything Sunday? The System Film has a big shoot happening all day over here in Northeast, and they need a lot of extras. I'll be there. (Considering that I have a role in the film and that Sunday's shoot location is just 2 blocks from my house, I really have no excuse not to be there.) Here's the email from Cristina with all the details:
The System is filming a General
Assembly and Protest on Sunday, and we're putting out a call for extras.
We need a lot of people there to fill the hall, so if you or anyone you know are interested, please come out to the Firefighters Hall and Museum on Sunday.
664 22nd Avenue Northeast (Corner of 22nd & Madison Street, next to Edison HS Athletic Field)
This will be the big SPEECHES day, GENERAL ASSEMBLY, and all the UNION HALL stuff.
IT WILL BE A LONG BUT EXCITING DAY! We need extras all day, from 8:30am to dusk, but most of all from 9:30am-3pm and 4pm to dusk. Wear khakis if you have them. Otherwise jeans and a white t-shirt. Black pants as final resort.
This is important stuff! Come help us out and we'll feed you and entertain you a while.
