    I so loved the photographs, and the food. Robert has a great personality and he has such a colorful life. I did however feel that this presentation was more steered towards reminiscing with his friends than a photographic presentation. I would have like a little more about his photographic technique and challenges of taking the shots. Maybe I had the wrong impression of what the presentation was meant to be? Having said that it was a very enjoyable evening.

    any suggestions on parking?

    February 20, 2013

    • Edward W.

      If you arrive at 6 pm, when the meters stop, you should be able to find free on street parking. I have never had a problem finding a spot at that hour.

      February 20, 2013

    • Edward W.

      In case you are not able to find a parking spot on the street, there is a parking lot under the Sports Basement.
