well, i didn't get the black dress memo, but Tessa, in all her glory, came through and dressed me up in her grandmother's finery. the dinner was for Jessica, who is a chef, and the ladies sweated the whole day in the kitchen to feed us full. after eating, Ritchie from Loch Lomond, Sean from Invisible Rockets, and little ole me, played acoustic sets on the balcony, ending finally in sing alongs, and giggles.
zucchini stuffed with chevre and pesto, inspired by the chefs at Simpatica. oh man, it was amazing.
