SO. The summer solstice is the day of Luther and my anniversary. This year was a significant one. I won’t say the number but it has to do with Gold.
We decided to invite most of our new friends here to a lunch at Calagrana. I wanted it to be family style and casual. Comfortable. The weather was hot but we were on the side porch in the shade with the occasional breeze. Here are some pictures.
we decided to ride in our Chariot the Angelo Giallo.
Ely’s signature cocktail complements of the house. Thanks Ely! But, even on this special day, she wouldn’t tell me what was in it!
Table all set and waiting.
Luther looking handsome in is Hawaiian shirt.
Me ready for the fun.
Some of the friends who joined us to celebrate.
Paul, Susan, Stuart, Jill.
Vera, Jen, Joanne.
Cuzin’ Tom. My maiden name is Gilmer. Tom’s last name is Gilmore. Both from Scotland originally. We have to be cousins!
Desiree, Vera’s pretty red-head daughter.
All of us!
Chef Albi hard at work at the grill.
And of course I had to have pictures some of the food. I forgot to get it all.
We had a multi-plate antipasti to start. Chicken wings, Charcouterie, quiche…
Torta alla Nonna for dessert. SO good!
I had Ely and Albi special order lobsters for us. And we had beautiful rib eye steaks too.
I think everyone had fun. It only happens once!
