Landsmen Dinner at the Fairmont


Joined the usual suspects at the spring Landsman Dinner in the Venetian Room at the Fairmont. Hey, it gives me an excuse to drag the tux out of the closet every now and then.


The event fit the venue. It's a throwback to a different era in San Francisco - the "Mad Men" version SF 60's with strong drink, cigars, steak and potatoes and politically incorrect, decidedly sexist jokes.

Corsi warms them up.
Can't complain for an intimate dinner of 100+ guests...


Landsmen
The San Francisco Giants broadcast team of Mike "Kruk" Krukow and Duane "Kuip" Kuiper were the guests of honor, hence the ubiquitous orange and black:
Krup and Kuip
It was fun to hear the old baseball stories, including a couple from Wrigley Field, but... geez...  This whole "Three World Series Championships in Five Years" thing is really hard to take for a lifelong Cub fan.
