A Going Away Celebration
In previous posts I have shared stories about some of our wine club gatherings and this week we had an outing to say goodbye to one of our members. Our wine club is great. None of us know a lot about wines but all of us love learning about them. We're a diverse group and because we are all so different things are always interesting. One of our members was widowed, but she met someone and will be getting married and will be moving to Castleton-on-Hudson, NY.
We held a small gathering this week to celebrate her happiness and to say goodbye. Our meeting was in a new Atlanta restaurant called Social. It just so happened that some friends, two brothers originally from Tunisia but who grew up in Lyon, just opened the restaurant. The food is wonderful but sadly I was so busy visiting that I forgot to take pictures of the food - sorry! The art work was also interesting. The wall paintings were done by the nephew of Laura Esquivel, author of Like Water for Chocolate. We are sad to say goodbye to one of our members but we are so happy that she has found happiness.
