I want to thank everybody who showed up, but feel bad for those who couldn't. What a crew!!!
The second Ohio-Penn GTG was an exciting evening, full of gifts, drinks , food, and most importantly: Friends/COMMUNITY!

We chose Michael Alberini's Restaurant and Wine Bar, which was Crackin! 

I forgot to take pics. As usual, I was too excited, so I borrowed these from the web:







Mann Jewelers sponsored, along with a friendly strapmaker!






We had one watch that deserves a cameo from the table shot:



Even amongst two Pateks and an A. Lange, it dominates


Pams:

Far left in the loud shirt is , without a shadow of doubt Mr George Clooney , whilst the gentleman poking his tongue out in the middle wearing the white shirt is obviously Brad Pitt !!

Great job on the GTG and looks like that Casio took best of show!

I'll say it again - GREAT job Steve!! You did a wonderful job of planning and pulling everyone together for an awesome evening. Thanks again for doing this and for being such a great friend. You and Stef rock .

I totally did not notice this at the time, but you couldn't have picked a better moment for the table shots - hands at 10 and 2, just like at SIHH .
