Opera in the park
Champagne brunch with culture
24-Apr-06. Phil asked, "Who wants to go to Opera in the Park?" We all said, "We do!" It's not that we're great opera fans, but the park would be a nice change of venue for a pot-luck brunch. Above all, everybody bring a bottle of champagne!
Phil turns out to be quite the organizer. He got Réal to accompany him by dawn's early light to the park where they set up tables and laid down blankets to stake out a group homestead under the trees. Eventually about twenty people arrived with food and drink, and the merriment began.
The city had set up the portable band shell and erected two huge tents. Various vendors and organizations set up booths around the periphery. People showed up with kids and various four-footed opera fans and settled in for a good time.
