On the way, I stopped at a deli near 17th Avenue, a few blocks from Jane's sister's. There was a man who appeared to be dead on the sidewalk, but i didn't have a chance to help, because the proprietor came out and yelled at me, saying that emergency services had been called. Picked up some sunflowers and sparkling wine, and averted my eyes on my way out.
Ann and Doug had a slew of people over to their beautiful house for a Memorial Day celebration. It was a blast. They provided the meat, and everyone brought side dishes and dessert. Of course, as always, the meat was spectacular. Doug used to be a butcher, and he was grilling ribs, plump burgers stuffed with bleu cheese, brats, and tri-trip.
Richard's creme brulee was a huge hit.
