Silke’s Old World Breads on College Street was the place to be Saturday night (Jan. 24).
To celebrate the inauguration of President Obama and “change” for America, Silke’s offered an all-you can eat after-hours buffet, which in tandem with the extensive art on exhibit in this shop, made the $8 per person event a popular choice. The crowds proved it.
Advance tickets were sold, and little more than a half-hour into the event, Silke’s was turning away people (who had not purchased advanced tickets) at the door.
The SRO crowd was vibrant, chatting about the election and taking a “yes we can” attitude toward the new presidential administration. Around the room, interspersed with works by local artists, were images of the January 20 inauguration. Here are images from this unique event.
