Cafe Calabria

The Urbansketchers started the year with a full-scale invasion of Cafe Calabria on Commercial Drive.  It's a great sketching place, not to mention a great cafe, full of classical sculptures, European decor, cherubs painted on the ceiling, and (oddly?) Flesh Gordon posters.  Unforgettable music too ("When the moon hits your eye like a big pizza pie, that's amore"  Now it's stuck in your head too).  And great characters - the fellow in the portrait was perhaps not thrilled that I kept looking at him to draw, but that's not a rude hand gesture - he wouldn't hold his hand still, so I tried to draw it after he'd left and it didn't quite turn out right...
