Any takers?!  Oh my dear Mme Euphrenia (she with the poetic name of lovers past) any gallant and genial gentleman, adventurous, lissome lady, or even those persons of an amalgamated or ambiguous semblance,  should leap, albeit within the bounds of civilized etiquette, at the very mention of such an opportunity.

I'm not available on the weekend of the 9th and 10, and Pride weekend is right out, but I'm so far free the 17th and the 30th. Any takers?

Comment by Shadarko on June 4, 2012 at 6:39pm

I was wondering if anyone would be interested in another attempt on having a picnic in the city one of these weekends this month (probably not Pride weekend).

Good morning! What a treat it was indeed to have attended Sunday's  salon. I feel EngineRmRaphi has written a most excellent description of the event, to which I can only add my own most heartfelt gratitude to Mr. Mathew Nash for so graciosly planning and hosting such a perfect afternoon's diversion. Thank you!

Comment by Shadarko on May 21, 2012 at 1:00am

Thanks so much Matthew for being such a gracious host and tour guide today.  I know we were all dumbstruck and in awe of everything you showed us today.

Thanks again!

There are no superlatives to describe my envy, but I had to be at the final staff meeting for Clockwork Alchemy happening next weekend. It was nowhere near so exciting, I promise (though I suppose that's a good thing in it's own way). I do hope to see some of you there...

The charming and gracious gentleman, Mr. Matthew Nash, held a genteel salon this Sunday, May 20th.  For us who deign to label ourselves as SF/SP.  Other letters appropriate to the setting were of course quite welcome as well.

We then departed for a grand tour led by Mr. Nash.  To view at close range the fabulous costumes of the SF Opera in all their exquisite detail. 

No amount of hyperbole would overstate this experience.  The impact on the senses was no less than a Taj Mahal in tapestry, the Louvre in leather, a silken psychedelica.  Many of these items Mr. Nash himself has seen to completion.

To Mr. Matthew Nash:  Very definitely a doff of the top hat and and a bow from the waist in your honor, sir.   Many thanks and huzzah indeed!

Sadly, I am no longer able to make it on Sunday. :(
