Re: OT - did my duty

I hope you had a chance to meet up with old friends Auralie. I'm not much for events either and don't really like lobster, but hopefully there were some people that made it worth going.

Subject: [CHAT] OT - did my duty

I had to attend the Constitution Island  fundraiser "Seafood Gala"
last night.  I volunteered in the garden there from 1970-89, and
Chet has been on the board of directors since about 1975.  It was
a beautiful evening, and I guess it was a really nice event -   pretty
expensive at least - but I don't enjoy such events.  There was a
bluegrass band - pretty good - and a big tent.  The main feature
was lobster.  There was a raw bar with oysters, but that didn't
attract me.  The main course was a whole lobster, corn cob,
a scoop of mussels, and a small salad.  The site is so beautiful.
I have always loved it.  But I had just rather have been there
quietly without all the people trying to impress each other - lots
of retired military.  And I really decided that I prefer Lobster Thermidor
to whole lobsters.  They are much more trouble than they are
