The Rent Party--Woo hoo!

The Union Project celebrated five years in style--Harlem Renaissance style, that is. During the HR, folks would throw a party, have a live band, and charge admission. They used the cash to pay their rent, hence the name "rent party." The UP used proceeds from their fifth anniverary party to pay their mortgage on their building, the former Union Baptist Church.

The Great Hall, full of party-ing folks.
The cake, which was very good.
A picture of the historic postcards I bid on at the Silent Auction, which seems to be playing peek a boo with Blogger at the moment. Apparently at one time, the zoo was all indoors. Stay tuned for when I show up close pictures of the postcards. Not today, though. Other items in the Silent Auction: a pair of Pirates tickets, a bowl (beautiful pottery), a rug. Other stuff. Me, with the postcards. Note behind me, the stained glass doors, which feature the Union Project's logo.
