Pics from the launch! #UmbrellaMan

Apparently, traffic was terribly snarled tonight (it was taking two hours to get from Riverside to Parkdale via the Queensway) and a number of people who’d hoped to come to the launch simply couldn’t make it. Nonetheless, I’m grateful to those who did – we had a lovely time.

Here are some pictures – these were mostly taken by me before things got busy, so I’m hoping that some of the people who were there will send me theirs as well. And thanks to Bruce Mayo, who parked his 56 Thunderbird out front of the venue. Shades of Havana!

The food was incredible – Michael did an amazing job with the cookies! (There is a small silver pistol in Umbrella Man – look at the detail work!)

(The folks in the above shot by the way, are three local photographers (Janet McGee, Peter Waiser and Rob Huntley) who kindly agreed to exhibit their photos of Cuba to support the book launch. The other two whose work is on display, Bill McCloskey and Bruce Amos, were unable to attend) Gorgeous stuff, and it will be up all month at Cake and Shake. Well worth a visit!)

DSCN1321We had all kinds of cool drinks, from Pina Coladas with (of course) tiny umbrellas, to beer in growlers stamped with my jacket cover, to umbrella and revolution- themed wine!

And of course, we had to have blood spatter!
