After work, I made my way to 18th Avenue to partake in the opening night celebration. Highlights include:
Venerating Santa Rosalia at the outdoor chapel
Enjoying some delicious seafood...
...or sausage & peppers...
...and a wide array of desserts to satisfy your sweet tooth.
I had brioche con gelato (Zuppa Inglese) and espresso
