Sad to say, I wasn’t able to make it to the Apron Gala this past year. I held an unrealistic hope that I’d be well enough to attend, but that would have depended on me getting off a ventilator, getting my trach removed, and being able to hold myself upright in a matter of 2 short weeks after being in a medically induced coma for over a month. When I plan, I plan big. I was depressed about missing it – it was the first time in many years that I missed both the North Market Apron Gala *and* the Taste of Dine Originals events. Paul, like a trooper, went in my place, and managed to get quite a few nice pictures. But this year? I’m going to go, and will actually wear an apron this year. Save the date, it’s just a few short months away now on Saturday, May 19th. More details as the date gets closer. In the meantime, enjoy these pics of last year’s event. The link to the slideshow of all pictures can be found at the bottom of this entry.
