You & Me 2 - 1 year anniversary

So last night was the big one year anniversary party over at You & Me 2, and we wandered over there early so that we could make sure that we could get a table large enough for all of our friends that were coming over. We showed up shortly after 16:00; there were a few people there, the Chinese band that plays some weekend afternoons was just packing up, and the staff were just starting to decorate by hanging balloons and banners up. Ulf, the crazy old Swede who's bar it is, wasn't around and his wife explained to us that he was back in Sweden because his mother isn't doing well. She then asked if we could, since we had our cameras, take all of the photos for the evening. She also gave us her video camera for us to record the party. Yeah, so by showing up early to get seats we become the unofficial event photographer and videographer...
By 19:00 the bar was mobbed with people, and everyone was enjoying the free anniversary drinks in absolutely perfect weather. Tina took to the video camera and went from table to table so that patrons could congratulate Ulf on one year...

They had set up a video conference with Sweden so that Ulf could call in and cheer everybody on and thank us all for coming. The computer lagged a little bit, but it was good to be able to see him and have him see some of the party that he had put together.

All in all, it was a great night, and Tina and I feel like we did a respectable job of trying to document the event. We are a little worried about the video, as with all of the rapid movements of people it seemed to have some trouble focusing, but hopefully they are able to get some good footage. We managed to get about 100 good photos that show the setting up, the crowds, the cake, and the fun night that is the dance floor...
