Piano recital Feb 2014
Students of Owen Summers congregated at the Violin shop for another recital.
The daughter performed a Cure cover, and the camera focus was way off, but it's more about the soundtrack than the image. Fuzzy soft focus sort of works with how it came out on piano anyhow!
Owen had some of his bandmate musician friends along. #1 son played with them and even had a piano solo. They sounded good, REAL GOOD!
to celebrate this musical victory, we all went to Pe'che' for happy hour.
all those eats and drinks are half price for HH (all night on sunday)
that must be the BEST French Onion Soup in town ($12 regular, $6 for HH). We also loved their Mushroom Fritters and Beet Salad.
The sun had gone down and 4th street was starting to get lively. We sat by the front window and one of the kids noticed a guy dancing in the window across the street. "oh, those are all gay bars, you know, men that love men". I turned around to look, I saw that Castro's Warehouse did have a dancer, in an open window towards the street filled with people.
Then, #2 son announced, I want to go over there, and have you take my picture with that guy dancing behind me". I laughed at first, but then I couldn't think of why not... his request was made so innocently.
#1 son didn't want to get close to the guy dancing in the window. The club next door (Oilcan Harry's) has a big poster out front, with showgirl looking images. I warned #1 son, "those are NOT women...". That was enough for him. He was ready to go! #2 son didn't understand the fuss, #1 was about to explain when the daughter stopped him "it's called INNOCENCE, let him keep it"
as we got into the car to go home, #2 son said "HEY! Did anyone else notice? that dancing guy was IN HIS UNDERWEAR!"
