Well the big day was yesterday and I'm still taking it all in. We were cursed with the first absolutely perfect day of the year , so I was thinking that a Sunday matinee was DOA. Much gloom on my part in the AM.
Yet we still half filled the place, the chefs and farms were famously good, and the crowd was enthusiastic. A lively and vigorous debate followed, with a real who's who of organics in CT for the roundtable after. And Brett's movie is wonderful and Paul is lucky Brett let him be in it ( ). They are a dynamic team, like Scorsese and Deniro.
And Cinestudios remains the most beautiful place to see a movie in Connecticut; old Gothic stone and carved wood, and red velvet.
My thanks to all who participated; I have thanked you all elsewhere and this is not the place, but everyone in the building yesterday has my undying gratitude. I owe a particular debt to Rep. Richard Roy, cochair of the Environmental Committee for his attendance and participation. It was and is most appreciated.
