Definitely a huge hightlight of my summer, it was truly heartwarming to see Shannon Selberg back on stage with Kevin Rutmanis (half a cow, man.) The whole day was star-studded, and it was nice to see so many familiar faces. Reviler did a great write up and took some fabulous shots: http://www.reviler.org/2013/07/21/photos-amrep-bash-13-at-grumpys/#prettyphoto/36/ – I wish these things could happen every summer. Twice every summer. I can’t even imagine the wrangling and coercion that goes on to make something like this work…thanks to AmRep leader Tom Hazelmeyer and his army for making this happen. Well done, this was a beautiful day!
I am not certain how the folks in the wedding party in the building next door to Grumpy’s felt about the whole affair. We kept waving at them and blowing them kisses. They kept staring at us with their champagne glasses from the third-story balcony as though we were some kind of zoo display. Which made it pretty much perfect.
