Ayla, Zahira and I danced last night at the Athenian Corner to honor the birthday of the incomparable Freddie Elias. It was hot. I mean hot. Thank goodness for ice water and folding fans. But it was a lovely celebration – the restaurant was packed with musicians and dancers, the atmosphere was festive, and the band was smokin’ as usual. Each dancer did a solo set, and then the three of us joined together at the finale to dance through the audience and pose for pictures with Freddie. I can safely say we all had a blast.
Freddie, we love you!
