Um Cafe: A Very Special Open Mic Night for Sonya's Send Off

Gin and tonics on the roof of Jaleo... a perfect happy hour to get ready for a night of festivities!

Lots of hugs and smiles, celebrating the end of Sonya's Saigon era.

We all headed to a new cafe, Um Cafe @ 18/6 Truong Dinh, District 3, for an open mic night amongst close friends.  Music was played, drinks were had, and merriment was made.

Through the sliding concrete gate, across the pond, and up the wooden stairs leads to a Tolkien world of nooks, crannies, odds and ends, and original artwork.

A great place for a party as each square meter of the main room is cluttered with architectural idiosyncrasies - this is wonderment and whimsy sans kitsch. A truly distinctive place in a city where modern-minimalist decor has taken the air out of most creative spaces.

Local luminaries...

Old friends...

Ladies And Gentlemen We Are Floating In Space!

A special thanks to Alec for putting on such a wonderful event for our dear friend!

Oh Sonya, you will be missed by us and our whole community!  We're all just waiting for you to change your mind, dismiss those future potentialities,  and return to us... You're gonna make us lonesome when you go.
