On Sunday night, Haynes (one of the professors in my department) and his wife Juli came over for dinner with Mike, Tim, Vigleik, and Shihchi. It was a goodbye dinner of sorts for Mike and V. Haynes brought amazing wine to dinner. For instance a 1975 Saint-Julien Chateau Gruaurd Larose. I am pretty sure that I had never before had wine that was older than me! Haynes acquired the wine from the wife of another famous MIT topology professor, Frank Peterson, who died a few years before I got to MIT. Apparently he had a big collection of great wines!
We had a really fun dinner on Sunday. It was nice to do something to celebrate how much Mike and Vigleik have contributed to the topology group at MIT. I love Mike so much that I even made his favorite dessert rather than one from The Book! Shocking, I know! He begged for Salambos: eclairs, filled with coffee pastry cream and dipped in caramel. I made them and he ate four!
