Thanks to everyone who came out to Kaffeeklatsch #3, a.k.a. Rhubarb Social, ate to their hearts' content, got wired on coffee, gabbed, and generally helped make the atmosphere so vibrant.

Thanks to Team Myriade for once again working magic on the coffee front.

Thanks especially to Stéphanie Labelle of Pâtisserie Rhubarbe for collaborating with Team Laloux and Team Myriade on an event one wordsmith labeled the "Klatsch of the Titans."

Thanks also to Mother Nature for defying the experts at Environment Canada and providing us with such a phenomenally beautiful afternoon. It just got nicer and nicer and nicer...

And stay tuned for another Team AEB social in the very near future...

p.s. 2 If you missed Stéphanie's rhubarb tart on Sunday, you'll just have to visit her at Pâtisserie Rhubarbe, where it's part of her early summer 2011 collection. Check it out!
