Bob, Shirley, Don and I returned to Ryan And Khristina's house on Saturday morning for breakfast. We had bought bagels from our favorite bagel joint and they were so delicious. My family was all in attendance, as well as the BF'ers. We all visited while munching. Ryan stopped in for a while, also, and regaled us with stories from their after party at the bar of the Hotel Utica. It seems quite a group of them stayed until the wee hours of the morning.
At noon time my sister, nephew and niece, along with their significant others decided they had to get on the road, and they all departed. The remainder of the crowd, along with quite a few friends of the bride and groom, and the groom, went to the Saranca Brewery for our own tour. It had been many years since most of us had taken a tour and we had lots of fun. The tour ended in the 1888 Tavern where there is a beautiful bar and many beers on tap! What a surprise! Also at the bar were all of their bottled beers and sodas, of which we were all able to sample two. My favorites are the Orange Cream soda and Diet Root Beer.
When we had all had enough beer we decided it was time for lunch before the BF'ers headed home. Don and I introduced the crowd to another one of our favorite haunts, Casa Too Mucha, a local Mexican Restaurant that is within walking distance of the house. After lunch the BF'ers headed west.
That left Bob & Shirley, Steve & Donna, Justin & Gwen and Don & I.
Sadly, the wedding and reception are all over with, but they were such fun! We all had a great time and are so appreciative of those that were able to attend either or both events. Ryan and Khristina were so pleased, as well.
Signing off for now. New blogs probably in the spring and summer.
Thanks for reading!
