Because Sophie is leaving for Prague in a day we all gathered at Goldie's Italiano to cheers her "good-bye" (or in it's archaic form "God be with you").
After Goldie's closed us out, we headed to Alex V's front yard. (Yes, Alex happens to be in New York City.) Of course our random yard events are "High Society." Eric Denker, National Gallery of Art, senior lecturer, stopped by the yard for a beer and to help send off Sophie with an aire of sophistication.
