Unit Christmas Party
It was just 7 days ago that a big old Cadillac came crashing through the wall into the bridge club, and still we managed to have a first rate party this afternoon.
Beginning at noon, the choral group Jazz Infinitum entertained with their a capella renditions. The group is headed by Jim Heiner, and includes Iris Libby, Nancy Marling, Ann Bergmann, Jody Praklet, David Eimerl and Chuck Wong. They seem to have a preference for minor keys, which I’ve often heard in choral groups but don’t understand, but it’s an interesting blend of doo wop and uptown jazz. Here is a video of them doing Under the Boardwalk:
There was the customary ton of food, ranging from Costco sandwiches to deviled eggs to John Marron’s traditional English Trifle. Someone brought a box of little liquor-filled chocolates. I saw Eldonna nipping at one, hope she isn’t dancing on any tables tonight.
The bridge game got started: there were 20 1/2 tables, divided into two sections but scores across the field. Don Steedman and Vicki Chang had a 70% game to take home all the marbles.
People came dressed for the season. I got my little camera out, and took a bunch of photos of whoever caught my eye. Click on any photo and then you can scroll through the lot of them.
