Celebration at New Ethiopian Church on Taylor and Illinois

DSCN1527, originally uploaded by Prince of Petworth.

I thought it was a wedding. It turns out Saturday was St. Gabriel’s birthday and apparently that is a pretty huge deal in the Ethiopian Orthodox church. I’ll tell you what though. Despite the huge party and food I didn’t see one paper plate littering the street. These are some great neighbors.

And Happy St. Gabriel’s Birthday to you all.
