The Bad Luck Bar and Sake Brewery, Charlottesville, VA
|Many Japanese restaurants have white cats with one paw raised to bring good luck
The Bad Luck Bar has black cats: a great place for a post-graduation dinner.
Coincidence: I just read about the cats and sake last week.
|A glass of premium sake.
At Graduation Parties
|Friday afternoon: a party at Miriam’s friends’ special rooms on the lawn at UVa.
We went to several other parties, but didn’t take photos.
In the background you can see the vast number of chairs set up for the weekend’s graduation ceremonies.

Sunday Brunch at Guajiros Miami Eatery, Charlottesville
|Avocado toast with cream cheese, cucumbers, pickled onions, and an egg.
Delicious! Also very good orange juice and coffee.
Sunday Afternoon: Driving through Shenandoah, National Park
|I didn’t take a photo this year when we stopped for blackberry cobbler
in Shenandoah National Park, but here’s the photo from 2019.
(This year it came in a cardboard dish, not a nice little oven dish.)
Dinner: Takeout in Fairfax
