My wife's friends held a birthday party at a local Mexican restaurant last weekend. We got there late and I ended up at the far end of the table, out of conversation reach of everyone but my wife. So I chose to embrace my momentary social pariah status and I used the down time to sketch everyone at the table. We were waiting for stragglers so we sat for a very long time without food, hence all the bottles.
After the dinner party, we ran over to local bar and watched an Irish band play. Everyone was drinking, which made me the social pariah yet again since I don't drink. I took the opportunity to sketch the band as they finished up their set.
