Last night I was lucky enough to attend this event in beautiful Washington Park. To me, this has become the event of Tulip Fest weekend and I really look forward to it every year. I mean, if I want to have a couple of drinks in the park, I'd much rather do it with people who are dressed nicely, know what I'm saying? I was a little bummed that there were actually two events last night that I would have liked to attend. Maybe next year Taste of Albany and Champagne on the Park will each of their own night and I can make it to both. Last night's crowd was decidedly younger than in years' past and a bit hipper, too, I'd have to say. The band, whose name I never caught, was terrific and people seemed to be having a good time, despite the terrible tragedy that struck Tess' Lark Tavern Wednesday night. Both the Lark and Tess are Albany landmarks and I know they will be back and better than ever as soon as possible.
I've got some photos up from the party that you might enjoy.
