Riverside Convention Center 3-17-2009

St Patrick's Day was the date and the Riverside Convention Center was the venue for the annual combined Inland Empire Association of Bridal Consultants: the National Association of Catering Executives:
annual meeting.

A fabulous buffet, glorious lighting and decor, plus a stimulating presentation by ABC President David Wood topped off the evening. I rarely purchase raffle tickets but I felt lucky and won a pass for 4 for a round of golf at Sierra Verne Country Club. Golf anyone?

"At My Place," located in Corona, is a newer restaurant and event facility located in a trendy new shopping center. The ceremony itself, was held just down the street in a fountain courtyard and the reception was held in their lovely banquet room. I hope to be seeing a lot more of this lovely venue.

The Gardens at Hillsborough 2-19-2009

The Gardens at Hillsborough: is located in Chino and is one of the nicest assisted care facilities that I have ever played at. Back in the day, I was there twice a month for their regular Sunday brunch. Now, I am fortunate enough to be called occasionally for special events around holidays.
This was an after dinner concert that they hold in the lobby. I played to a nice sized group who were very involved that asked several questions and made many requests. A great time was had by all including "yours truly"
