Popped downtown this morning to pick up a gift for a friend at Century 21 (who are we kidding, though, went home with more treats for myself than anyone else, but that's a different story) and got out of the subway right at the foot of Trinity Church. It was just after 10 and the service was scheduled to begin at 10:15, so I figured I'd sit in for a bit.
Excellent start - I love a good boot scraper!
Trinity boasts an all-digital organ, which fills nearly the entire back wall of the sanctuary.
There's also an abundance of intricate stained glass.
Plenty to look at if the sermon has bored you!
The gardens are also spectacular. I've passed by many times and peeked in through the gates, but never taken the time to walk through and explore before. It was quite peaceful on such a foggy morning.
Beautiful headstones fill the courtyard, some of them so old that the writing has completely worn off.
A quiet moment before service.
In comes the choir! Reminded me of the good ol' acolyte days at First United Methodist AG.
Such a cheeseball name. I did not have high expectations for this place, but it was SO FUN.
Check it out, Dad!!
If you've never tried a Tasti-Lee tomato, you'd better get your little bottom to the store and pick some up!
Italian puns? Hmmm, I think I know who this is for....
We started with a variety of cheeses and salamis, which comes with honey and hazelnuts and crusty bread. Yummmmmm times a thousand.
The restaurant is quite famous for the beers that they brew onsite, but we didn't try any while there. At $10/pink they were a little steep for my taste, at least with dinner; might be fun to come back for a tasting sometime.
