We’ve now settled into cooler days, as the month of October comes to a close. The morning of the 21st, saw rain in the early hours but dried up by mid-day. It actually turned out to be a beautiful day with sun and temps in the hi-50’s.
Our Cruise Director, Rick Jakacki, found us a new venue on the west side, called Luigi’s Trattoria Pizzeria, in Livonia. In addition, our Cruise-Maestro, Bob Swartz, created a mini fall cruise to the restaurant from Waterford.
Luigi’s was very accommodating for our group with parking in the rear, our own waitstaff and tables outdoors. Members were given the choice of inside or outside dining. Most opted for dining alfresco. We had 12 Vipers and 23 in attendance.
While the sun was still out, it was quite pleasant dining outside. Once the sun set, it got a little chilly, but everyone braved the cold and had a great time, enjoying great food and great company.
Our beloved Diane Cipponeri got a little chilled and our very debonair Tony Smith jumped in to save a damsel in distress.
Traditionally there are no Cruise Nights in November or December, so it was good to see everyone for our last Cruise Night of the year. Hopefully for the new year, we’ll have some new options for getting together.
