Instead of staying at orchestra for 2 hours, I met my friend Kylee for cocktails and appetizers. I enjoyed an apple-tini,(my first one!) and Kylee refreshed herself with an Amstel light. We had a great time catching up!
I came back to hear the kids play for a bit, and the Maestro seemed quite pleasant and amusing. Did he have a change of heart? No, I think it was the cocktail. Whatever works.
