What a wonderful evening I’ve just had in downtown Manhattan at a pub called Molly’s. I’m in New York City on a weekend business trip. A few weeks ago I posted at note on the VO-BB about the fact that I was there and that led to tonight’s get-together with 3 voiceover talents from the area at this pub.
Here are Patrick O’Connor and I. (The photo was taken by Liz de Nesnera after she got to Molly’s.)
Patrick was nice enough to meet me at my hotel and walk me to Molly’s. This meant that I actually found the place and also gave us a chance to chat for a bit on our way there.
A few moments after we arrived and took a position well to the back, right in the way of some of the staff (but they were very nice about everything), Liz joined us. A lady standing near us (I regret to say I didn’t get her name) took a shot of Patrick, Liz and me.
No my ear isn’t on fire. That’s a reflection off of something behind us on the wall. Patrick, Liz and I chatted together for a few minutes while waiting for a table to open up and then Melissa Exelberth also joined us.
Moments later, a table opened up and we all sat together. Melissa and I were on one side of the table, so Liz got out her camera again and took another photo.
We had such a terrific time talking about voiceover work, training, life experiences, different places we’ve lived (Melissa was far and away the winner of exotic places she’s lived) and what we like best about New York and on and on. It was truly a great experience. The time just flew and then we all had to head out our separate ways.
Patrick, Liz and Melissa, thank you for such a truly delightful evening. And Patrick, thanks for picking up the tab!
