Bachelors & Benedicts Gala

Saturday night Nick and I had the chance for a real date. It was pretty nice to get out alone together for a night.

Nick's Dad is part of a group called the Bachelors & Benedicts. From what I understand it's basically a group of guys that get together once a month for dinner and have drinks and cigars. It's a brotherhood of sorts. Sounds like my kind of group!

Every other year they throw a big black tie gala at the Grand Theatre downtown. They have several different rooms set up with music. A Rock-n-Roll band, string/piano combo and a pop vocalist. Someone told me there was close to 500 people there last night. Then at 11 p.m. they serve breakfast. Nick's convinced that that idea came from someone who had too much to drink one year and wished they had stopped at Perkins/Denny's for some breakfast before heading home. :)

I loved the name of this wine. Hob Nob. Tony & Jenny Sweeney

This is our series of self portraits.

We had such a good time. Delicious food, crisp cold drinks, hot music, family and friends- simply a perfect celebration. Thanks again to mom & dad Sweeney for a memorable evening!
