Patrick Henry High School Band To Preform At Carnegie Hall

Dear Friends,

This blog post is different from my usual champagne and recipe posts. However, it is about something to celebrate and as I always say, “Don’t wait to celebrate!”.  On Saturday we attended a Food Festival at Dr. Pepper Park in Roanoke, Virginia, sponsored by the Patrick Henry High School Band Boosters, raising funds to help the band members achieve the dream of performing at Carnegie Hall, New York City, NY.  (Now that is something to celebrate!) As a former high school band member I was impressed by the parents and students that worked so hard to put this event together to support what will surely be a life-changing event for some of the band members. And since I recently saw the movie Florence Foster Jenkins starring Meryl Streep, Carnegie Hall was fresh on my mind! (Loved the movie by the way!)

The Food Festival featured local food vendors and trucks.  We enjoyed delicious pork barbecue (the chef pulled the pork at 4 a.m. that morning!) from Bent Mountain Bistro, Bent Mountain, Virginia.   This farm-to-table bistro serves delicious wood-fire pizza too!

My husband enjoyed a refreshing Deschutes Beer while I enjoyed Viva La Cupcake!  Lots of yummy flavors…they even have a Dr. Pepper cupcake (second from the left in the photo below).

Bravo Patrick Henry High School Band!
