Grand Opening and Session Recaps...Mother's Day session

Posted by Brigid Robine on Tuesday, May 4, 2010,

Grand Opening was more than Grand!

Well,I am still recovering from the Grand Opening last night.  I didn't realize how much Barry really put into it.  Free food and open bar for two hours, step dancers, pipers, our little band (for which we have no name) and EVEN PIRATES!  We had such a blast playing we played til almost 8pm without a thought.  The crowd was great...good tune requests.  So now lets build off of that with the sessions!  The session is going on today from 1-5 and I will be bringing down a paper for those who are...
