Wow, AC, whatta list of great events. A question...#2, the Taste of Bollywood at KCC...is the culinary dept. catering the event or are they not far enough into their semester to do that? That's one of my favorite restaurants when it's open.

I believe it is supposed to be the KCC students (?) doing the food. I believe they did so last year too. :-)

Loved Taste of Bollywood! The KCC culinary students did an incredible job with the food...4 courses of tasty decadence! It was the proverbial party in the mouth! Willow Chang's dancing was beautiful, as usual. And, there was HT's AC struttin' her stuff in the fashion show that featured Indian clothing in some of the most beautiful colors I've seen. You looked gorgeous, AC. Thanks for the heads up.

Thanks! We only had two rehearsals and no dress rehearsal--so despite a few glitches, I was relieved that everybody seemed to be having a good time. :-)

Tonight is sold out too.
