A few choice photos from the latest BBQ/Potluck here at the Edmonton Guitar School.
Staff, students, and friends enjoyed together an afternoon and an evening of relax. The weather was our big concern, but luckily we didn't have (too much) rain. Besides, we had a few hilarious reading of Accuweather ("rain in 22 minutes! Get these sausages ready!")
Here on the left you can see the BBQ corner with our student Robert playing while our teacher Dan studiously ignores the grill :-)
An here on the right, still Dan proudly showing off his fashion sense. (note: I actually love Judas Priest too, so I should not talk...)
During the afternoon we also had some students and friends playing an singing, all of this spontaneous (I love when people make music just because they like to do it!)
We also distributed to students an staff the newest Edmonont Guitar Music School t-shirt, just out of the presses! Here on the left I am showing off mine while I man the grill. I couldn't find my apron: "don't need a recipe, I'm Italian" - so might as well go "official" with the school shirt!
Thanks to all students bringing some of their favorite specialties the menu was very varied: we had tandoori chicken skewers (incredibly spicy), burgers & sausages, at least 3 different types of salad, sangria (yay!), cakes, and a lot of other things! The menu was suitable for both carnivores (as yours truly) and veggie lovers - because it's fun to have a party all together even if we eat different things!
(and here on the right our voice teacher Amanda eating something that I identified as a veggie burger. But I could be wrong...)
We had also many friends and students bringing their kids, and at a certain point the party resembled more a kindergarden meeting than a BBQ... but it's so fun to have all these kids running around!
And here, final photo, some of the participants (we had people coming and going all afternoon, so this is just a fraction of the people. Apologies to anybody not in the photo).
I'm definitely looking worward to another party like this! Maybe we'll be able to organize another one before the summer ends!
