Christmas Brunch at Casa Zama, December 25, 2010

Once again, Bud & Alice Blatner hosted the traditional Christmas Brunch at Casa Zama, and as usual, it was very well attended by all "the usual suspects".  The champagne and mimosas flowed quite freely, and the food was quite abundant.  And, a new addition this year was the Shaw log fire on the TV, and at one time Bud provided the sound effects of a log popping quite loudly, but it turned out to be another bottle of champagne; yes Lucy, we do know it is just a sparkling wine and not really Champagne.

And, Bud had the Yule Log roaring away.
