sapphire2.jpgSO WE HAD THIS MONTH’S FACULTY HAPPY HOUR at the Sapphire Bar downtown. I like the Downtown Grill & Brewery but Sapphire is kind of cool — lots of chill music (Thievery Corporation, Zero 7, etc.) and smoke free, plus an excellent wine selection. And the various bizarro martinis for those who like that kind of thing.

It was fun, as always. We ought to hang out more often than we do, but I suppose we do pretty well considering that pretty much everyone has family, kids, etc.

A lot of people seem to think that faculty folks hang out in the faculty lounge sipping sherry. Alas, it’s not true. But maybe we should.

So am I turning into Ann Althouse with all these pictures? I blame the camera!
