Lunch was at the Russian Tea Room.

Our tickets from the rainout are good for the makeup, on Aug 24, so we decided to buy tickets for Tuesday’s game there at the box office.

A stop for tee-shirts, and we found our way to section 35, row 7: six rows from the field (some of the action was in row 6 in our section.)
The newly won Stanley Cup was brought onto the field and lifted. (These were supposed hockey players, but i doubt it: no fights broke out!)

The man seated next to me is from Avon Ohio- right next to Avon Lake: file under small world).
We returned on the Red Line and had Irish whiskey in Kitty O’Shea’s (hotel pub) to celebrate Bloomsday.
N.B.: What is Bloomsday? Read Ulysses, by James Joyce. Test on Monday.
All in all, not a bad day…
